    Mike and I worked together for 35 years. Never a dull moment with Mike. We had a lot of good times at the Hill. Several times a year we would try to meet at the Golden Triangle Gun Club and spend a couple of hours shooting. Mike was a true friend I will miss you. David and Lisa my condolences.

    indeed, sorry to see that Mike has gone on. Long as I can remember Mike was a good guy and never had a bad word for anyone. Remember many a good times on two strokes and knobby tires with that guy. He always seemed to have a motorcycle throughout life. I appreciated him stopping by for a short visit every ten years or so. Always seemed to be the same guy from back in the 70s, never changed. Caught a glimpse of him at the reunion back in June but never saw him again that evening. Sorry I missed a chance to visit with him one last time. You never know. RIP Mike Stabbs, and Peace be with your family.
