I worked with Mike throughout his career at GE/Lockheed.  A great Team member and contributor.  My condolences to the family on their loss. Rest in peace Mike as you well deserve.

I knew Mike starting at GE Chestnut Street and continuing at VF.  I too went to Lehigh (BS 12/79) but did not know him there. 
Always pleasant, I was surprised when I learned he rode a motorcycle.  Secret lives. 
A good man.

My condolences on your family’s loss.  My mother was Dorothy Bleacher Loeffler Branner and Mike’s father was my first cousin.  This would make Mike my second cousin and I’m so sorry for his loss at what I consider a young age.  I haven’t seen Mike since we held a family get together at his home when he was about 9.  I know he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.  Rest in peace Mike.

Mike became a good friend that welcomed me Lockheed Martin Strategic Sysytems group in Valley Forge, PAin 2009 and taught me about Reentry Vehicles when I joined the. Not only was Mike an excellent engineer, he was also a great American patriot that worked very hard for decades on US Air Force ICBM strategic and research programs. He was sorely missed when his illness struck and eventually forced his retirement from Lockheed Martin. I enjoyed his friendly company after retirement as we ate lunch at his favorite restaurants. We all missed our luncheon gatherings kwhen Covid 19 interrupted our routine. My sincere condolences to Mike’s family.
