  2. Candle 7I was blessed to be able to meet him. His knowledge in the HVAC world was unexplainable. I will forever remember the knowledge he taught me and the stories he would tell praying for your family Mr. Mike. Such a great man will definitely be missed. I enjoyed every minute working with you.
