"Mike....It was a pleasure meeting you during Sense 8 and later on during the quiz night. You were always cool, calm and collected....Always had an eye out for the cast and crew (especially the international ones)-If I happened to 'loose' one of them, you calmly told me their location in a very reassuring way...You will be missed Mike. Rest with the Angels."

"We went to a lot of different cities during the Sense8 shoot and met a lot of different people, but Mike was someone who really stood out.

He was on set with us every day all day and he was the guy you knew you'd want to be close to if something went wrong. He just exuded this amazing sense of calm and professionalism, and also kindness. He was always "on" - you knew he was taking in everything going on around us, probably things we weren't even remotely aware of. I often wondered what he was thinking about. He was a gentle warrior.

He had a great love for the people of Africa. He *loved* what he did. We had some amazing conversations to and from set that I'll never forget, and he taught me so much about the country. But his presence, just the simple and indescribable way that he handled himself taught me a lot about what it means to be a man, even in that short time I knew him. He really made an impression on me.

I'd like to thank Mike's family for letting us have him for a little while. He was a truly special man. It's hard to imagine that he's not with us anymore, but I know that he's up in Heaven keeping the angels safe.

Safe travels, Mike."

"Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone. Those we love can never be more that a thought apart. For as long there is a memory, they’ll live on in our hearts.

May you Rest in Peace Micheal"

"Hey Mike.. was a great pleasure meeting you on set during the filming of Sense8.. It's sad that you are gone.. I remember you from the moments where we would sit and share coffee or tea at the catering tent  while you Watched over the crew as they were resting, always offered to help while we set up the unit area and you wore a smile on your face so calm that we felt comfortable around you..your dedication was an inspiration to many. May you rest in peace."

No one really dies as long as they took time to leave us with memories.

I remember your laughter

We had a great night at the Quiz event of which you were indeed a great team player, we all laughed big time. It was fun i remember...

I remember you watching over our crew on the Sense8 shoot

We felt safe having you around and that's a unique skill you had Mike. May you watch over your loved ones as guardian angel.

You will be missed Mike, RIP."

"I met Mike on the set of Sense 8 and his calm yet strong presence will be missed. Mike loved his work and his commitment can be compared to none other. You will be missed and im honoured to have met and worked with you. Rest In Peace Mike."

"Mike's passing was completely devastating for me, even though he and I had only had a few conversations on the set of Sense8. His warm spirit made it impossible not to like him and it was great that he always had a small smile on his face despite being the "tough guy" on set. He played a great part in making Sense8 what it was and his presence will always be missed.

Thank you Mike for all the warmth you shared with us. Until we meet again."

"We all instantly felt at home with Mike. He was kind, generous, calm, and, though we had lots of jokes about gaps in our education, he was smart and interested in so many diverse things in life. He was really fun to be with but never stole the limelight. And he had that unique reassuring presence without needing to say much. He never complained,  except to say that film people worked crazy hours. So of course we called him and his team wimps, which he pretended to admit to. The last time we played out he was at dinner charity quiz with us and in his very dry and deadpan way, kept us entertained all night with his feigned competitiveness and pretending to know all the answers (which he didnt). Mike also had really great taste & would have hated the music on this site too... sorry Mike! We are so saddened we didn't have more time with you x x x"

"I first met you at the shooting of Sense 8 in Kenya. You were always willing to help the crew with whatever we needed , be it lending a helping in moving equipment around or just giving directions. it was the simple little things that showed you had a big heart. You always ensured our safety. Forever we will be indebted to you.  As you sit with angels,  just know that we will miss you. RIP Michael."

"Michael, I love you more than words can say. You are the love of my life and will forever be in my heart. 8 amazing years and so many happy memories. I adored you and loved you unconditionally. You are my rock and I am so lost without you. I miss you and not a second goes by without me thinking about you. I know you want me to be happy not sad but its so hard, I am broken and I honestly don't know how to live a happy life without you. You made me the happiest girl in the world and I know I made you happy too. I'm devastated that we won't get to be in each others arms again. I am so so proud of you as you know, I would tell you every single day. I feel blessed to have had you by my side all these years.Our life together was perfect! We had so many adventures and amazing times together, incredible! Its so unfair, such a tragic, senseless loss, so unjust. I am heartbroken that you won't be coming home. I love you now, always and forever. Always yours, Joanne xxxxxx"
