A great friend and colleague. Mike always had a smile and a great view on life. He was inspirational in the way he carried himself and I can see by the messages that come before and after mine, he touched many lives. We will miss you my friend.
No words can express the gratitude I feel at the welcome mike provided to me when I first Joined Customs and Border Protection. He was a man of many talents and experiences as well as the embodiment of CBPs highest standards.
Mike, you and your family are in our prayers. We’ll see you on the other side.
Mike, as many others have noted, was as kind and generous a person as you could hope to meet. His passing is a loss for a wonderful family and an agency he served with such distinction.
I am truly saddened by this news. Mr. Taylor was very helpful in getting me on my way and lit a fire to pursue training to expand my skillsets. He was a person that conveyed strong interest and care for others. Please accept my condolences. My warmest thoughts are with the family as to get through this difficult time.
Mike will be missed. He provided me my basic training when I entered onto duty for CBP. Mikes guidance heavily contributed to my advancement within the agency, and he has always been a friend and mentor. I remember how he liked to joke around at work – his jokes were funny, but intended to convey deeper meanings in a non-confrontational manner. Mike really cared about people!
