Mike and I ran around a little bit. Man did he ever drive crazy! I always had to hold on. I believe...if research was would find that Mike would hold the record for most traffic violations in the Town of Pulaski. At one time, Mike was banned from driving in the state of Virginia. He moved to North Carolina for a while. I always liked Mike. I remember him from Claremont Elementary where I went in 1st grade '66-'67. I moved to Dublin on Labor Day'67. My mom took me to Dublin for a week or so in August by car (my uncle's '58 Chev.) until we got moved into our new house which was still unfinished. We lived in one room and ate our meals fixed in a little toaster oven like thing and on a hot plate. The next time I saw Mike was when Dublin and Pulaski joined to become PCHS. Every time I hear "Beast of Burden" or "Some Girls" by "The Rolling Stones" I think of Mike.

When my family moved from Washington state to Pulaski, we lived just below Claremont Elementary on McGill St. Mike was always nice to the 'new kid' all through our school years.

I first met mike in the clarmont days,i learned very quick to never dare him to do anything he was crazy but in agood way.this is the only man i know that could speed on a bike,he was a driveing fool.the last time i road in a car with him we were comming down bertha st thats A BIG STEEP HILL that comes to a tee in the road i looked over at him (we were doing 70 mph )he said i dont know if we are going to stop at the bottom now at the bottom you go right or left straight throught you end up on the rail road tracks well when we hit the tracks he never slows down we drive down the tracks and into town.needless to say the drinking got worse the rest of the night my nerves were shot.when you got mike,george link,james dalton togather you got trouble.I remember our 10 year reunion at the end of it mike was chaseing james and george down through the woods at the union hall in the dark throwing ice out of acooler at them running into trees laughing as loud as he could they all looked they had been in a cat fight i laughed till my sides hurt.I talked to mike about 3 to 6 months before he passed away he seemed troubled he was worred about his mom for some reason, and had hurt his back to where he could not work. I wont miss the driveing part but i will miss my in peace buddy.James Rupe
