It was my honor and privilege to have been Mike’s mentor and sponsor for the Society while we worked together at McCormick. Mike came up to the flavor lab from the production department so he had a unique perspective of understanding the correct way to construct a flavor. He was extremely creative in his flavor design and also had a strong science background to draw from. As it turned out we were both “Trekkies” and that quickly led to a strong bond and friendship. His passing was sudden and unexpected and I can truthfully say that I will miss him dearly. Rest in peace Mike!
