Mike was such a great guy. He stood up at our wedding and was a good friend to Ryan when he was growing up. Thanks for the ski lesson and all the fun fishing memories. Love you-Heidi

Mike you were one of the good guys. Thanks for being a good friend to my brother Jerry.
My condolences to the family.

Marla and I pass our sincere condolences to the McVay family as Mike moves on. Mike was a valued friend, would give his shirt off his back if needed, a hard worker, never shirking his responsibilities, and one of the most conscientious, detail-oriented gents I have ever known.. the reason why we bought Maytags for years. Have many fond memories waterskiing with Mike and the usual crew on the lakes south of Colfax and kibitzing on his love of aviation and flying. A good man and friend to many who will be sorely missed!
Sincerely, Chris and Marla Behrens, Fuquay-Varina, NC & NAS Patuxent River, MD
