He was killed in an automobile accident while responding to a fire at an oil tank battery just before 7:00 a.m. He was traveling northbound on Route 349, north of Rankin, when an oil-field truck crossed the center line and struck his patrol car head-on.
Police officials describe Mike as irreplaceable and a good man who made everybody laugh.
Mike is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his wife, three sons and a daughter.
Pray for all who die in the line of duty.
