Michael was a friend of mine who graduated a year ahead of me at Lowell High School.

Michael ran track and was a gentle soul.

Peace my friend.

Will see you again in the Afterlife.

Mike was from one of the nicest families on the planet. I only spoke with him a few times, most of my interaction was with his Mother and younger siblings, but the few times I did speak with him were enough times to know that this man was a man of class, integrity, and he was special. The entire family is special. He is missed.

I was stationed with Soulman in 613th TFS, Torrejon AB, Spain as well. I remember being TDY to Aviano, We were in the California Bar and he bought My First ever shot of Wild Turkey in 1990. I think I'm still hung over from that night...

Peace and God Bless

This weekend we're having the first reunion of our Gulf War unit from Torrejon, and while it won't be the same without 'Timmy' there - we know that he'll always be there with us. We miss you.

Michael was my cousin- Although, I hadn't seen Mike in many years before he passed away. We were so very proud! Still Love you Mike.

Mike was a great guy and it was a real pleasure to work with him at the 38TRS, Zweibrucken AB, GE back in the 1980s.

I played basketball on the Zweibrucken base team with Mike. What a great guy.

Dennis and I felt like Mike was part of our family in Zweibrucken...sometimes it felt like he lived with us. I absolutely loved him and we were devastated to hear of his accident. I would love to get in touch with his parents...i think they were in Charlotte...I have some cute pictures of him I know they would love. He and Dennis are buried within a few feet of each other!! One day my friend...on day we will see you again.

When I first came to the Sowell family from California state foster care, I had a difficult time adjusting to a new life, which would carry over into my academics. Michael would write letters often to me wherever he was stationed, simply encouraging me..not so much in getting better grades, but in just being myself. He always accepted me, never pointing to me the problem, but gently caring for me thru the solutions. I miss you Mike...give mom a kiss & a hug.

My 1st cousin

I flew with Mike at Zwiebrucken AB back in the 80's - Great guy who was well respected and always smiling. I am saddened to learn he moved on. The world is a bit less without you.

I was stationed in TJ with Hodgee. He and Captain Joe THE SPAG. Were inseparable. During Desert Storm we had many meals together. I was a 462 who worked closely with Mike and Joe. His smile and down to earth manner was rare then and is even more so now.I know we'll meet again on the OTHER side. You are very much missed Mike. Does anybody know what took his life?
