Hi Shirley, I just recently found out about Michael passing away. I’m glad you got him in at McCalls. I had my mom there. Right after Christmas I spoke with Michael and your daughter on the porch at Greenville Glen. He certainly enjoyed the band they had perform for their Christmas party. I did too! It was nice to see him singing along to our generation’s music. He was happy! That’s my memory of Michael😊

Mike and family lived across the street on Sewanee Ave . in Greenville when I was a child. Later in life I would run into Mike often at The Sports Club and we enjoyed walks and talks. I will miss him. A gentleman through and through.

I never saw Michael be anything other than a true Southern Gentleman. Always friendly, smiling and kind. A true Clemson Tiger, a great Father and friend to all he met. You will be missed Michael. I know when you entered heaven you had a smile on your face as you were made whole by our Lord. You will never be forgotten. Catherine Kinworthy

I am saddened to hear of Mike's passing, he was a great man I loved working with. I had the opportunity to hire Mike into the Shoe Show family and have missed him since the day he retired. I pray for the family and will always cherish the time spent with him. And yes Clemson and family were the topic of most of our conversation.

I worked at Meyers Arnold from '73 to '81 beginning in the young men's dept. and men's suits after Carter became mgr. As a transplant from NC, Mike DID convert me to a Clemson Tiger. Lots of fond memories from those times. Seems like Mike always had a smile on his face. My condolences to the Bishop family. Mike was a fine man. Steve Thomas

My thoughts and prayers to Mike's family who I never met but heard alot about as I spent time with Mike during our years at Shoe Show. Mike was a special person who I dearly missed after his retirement. I lost touch with him several years ago but will always remember his enjoyment of life. We spent so much time talking about ACC sports he ALMOST turned this Tarheel into a Clemson fan. Rest in peace my friend

Shirley and family, I worked with both Michael and Shirley, Buck and Carter &Ronnie many years ago. Michael was one of the nicest, kindest and soft spoken man always. We all watched the dating years and as their love grew so did their story. So sorry that the last years were so hard. He is free, he is healed and will wait Shirley, until the day you join him in Glory. Kim Orzano Weathers
