  4. I am deeply saddened by the news of Mike’s untimely death. He was a man of great insight and personality, and his death is a great loss. He will be missed.

    God Bless

  5. I met Mike O when I joined the Levi Strauss account. Mike, Roy Smith and I went to lunch together almost every day when we were at Westlake. I worked on Mike’s testing team for 18 months. Mike was my friend, mentor, sometimes team leader, and whenever I was in a town he was also in, my chaufeur. Mike will be missed by folks across the nation, and not only by the fortunate few who have been able to gather here today to honor his life and memory.

  6. I had the privilege of working with Mike for the last year and was dazzled by his wealth of knowledge. He was my mentor and I feel I had the honor to learn from the best. He was not only a colleague but a good friend. I already miss him more than words can say.

  7. I knew and worked with Mike since January, 1995. He will be greatly missed in my life and in the lives of so many others.

    My thoughts and wishes extend to his family and his other friends in this sad time.

  8. Dear Bill and Carolyn,
    We were very sorry to read of your son Michael’s passing. Our thoughts are with you in this time of sadness. There can be no greater loss than that of a child, no matter what their age. Take comfort in your family and friends.
    With sympathy, Janet and Russ Dash

  9. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of Mike’s family, friends, and colleagues. He was a good man and had an amazing work ethic. He will be missed.

  10. A couple of years ago I found myself in situation trying to accomplish a task that was both frustrating and difficult and also well above my pay grade to solve. Over the course of a day or so I had made several phones and sent several emails trying to get the right leaders engaged, all to no avail.

    In the end, the only person in EDS I communicated with, who stepped to help me, and EDS, was Mike O. It wasn’t even really his area, it was just closer to his than to mine. That’s the kind guy Mike was.

    I will miss him, as will EDS.

    Mr. and Mrs. Osnowitz, you raised a fine son into a good man. Thank you and you’re in our prayers.

  11. Mike and I have worked together for over 10 years. His dedication to getting the job done right was his internal strength and leadership execution. He made many friends in many locations in the over 20 years he worked for EDS. He was in inspiration to many of us and will be missed, as he now rests peacefully.

  12. As Mike O. looks down upon each of us, I hope he realizes how many lives he has touched in such a positive way, and that each of us will never forget him and always miss him. May Mike’s family find comfort at this very difficult time.

  13. Mike was well liked and loved by his team mates in San diego. We will miss his intellegent approach, business acumen, and mostly, his keen sense of humor and tolerance. It was my honor to have worked with him

  14. I enjoy every moment of learning information that Mike presented to me. He will be missed as a friend and a teacher to me. Rest in peace my friend.

  15. we will miss our cousin Mike very much. we are so happy to be able to have had him at our wedding and can’t believe he is gone. His helpfulness and kindness will be remembered.

  16. Mike was not just a valued member of my leadership team at EDS…he was a good friend. He will be sorely missed.

  17. Dear Carolyn and Bill,

    My heart goes out to both of you. What an unimaginable loss. I can only imagine how difficult this time must be. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Tom and Karen

  18. As co-workers, Mike and I shared many challenges and joys. Joy created with the sense of accomplishment that is difficult to genuinely express to others that were not in the trenches. Mike was an ally and friend, one I was honored to have in the trenches with me. Thanks for the friendship and cherished memories, Mike. May God bless and sustain Mike’s family during this difficult time.

  19. Mike was a wonderful person, always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need, eager to share his time and knowledge with others, and very personable. We’ll miss him very much.

    Our thoughts, prayers and hearts are with his family at this difficult time

  20. Thinking of you both during this most difficult time. May you find laughter in your memories and peace in knowing that Michael was cherished by so many. I will keep you in my prayers.

  21. Heartfelt sympathies. We will have you in our prayers and thoughts. God Bless, Steve and Jeanie Port
