much money for the local community and its play park, its church — and finally the village hall, which sadly, Michael never got to see officially open, as it is still about a month away from being finished. My Thoughts I have been touched by the kind words from Army friends, packaging industry heavyweights, clay shooting “royalty,” Arabian racing enthusiasts and dozens of people from Michael’s community — all of whom are shocked and saddened by his sudden passing. The COVID lock-down had not been kind to Mike and there is part of me that feels he was just missing his mates, frustrated by not being able to have a good party and not able to get out and about.

I have grown up for the last 27 years in the packaging industry, at Mike’s side, with dear Mum holding us on a steady course. I learned from the best. I strive to uphold his memory. I will miss him eternally. But as one dear in- dustry friend told me, remember what Mark Twain said; “Good fathers not only tell us how to live, they show us.” Your dear wife and family are heartbroken. People from all walks of life, from all over the world mourn your de- parture — you have left a massive, gaping hole. But I will always hold onto this: Mum, Ben and I got to call you our best friend. Rest easy, Dad. Michael was hugely passionate about the industry and he would be honored if friends and industry associates would pledge a donation of support to AICC’s Foundation for Packaging Education.
