God Speed Mike. Sending prayers to your family. Love, Linda McConnellogue-LoRusso. May you Rest in Peace.
Mike – my manager and my friend. Your kindness, ongoing caring nature, generosity and support will be missed forever.
Each day working with you (2011-2013) and subsequently every ‘get together’ we had, always started with “how’s Paul & the boys?” I always cherished the thoughtfulness you showed me and always will.
I wish I had a photo of us when we were working together, but this one is special from one of our last catch-up’s.
Heaven is a better place with you in it, to watch over us. Rest in Peace my friend.
RIP Mike, it was a pleasure to have known and worked with you. You are in my thoughts and prayers as are you family at this sad time. God Bless.
Mike, it is so terribly cruel and unfair that you have been taken away from your wonderful family, and us all. You made a difference to everyone you touched. I will always remember you as the most thoughtful, open, supportive and generous person. RIP. Oksana
Mike it has been years since we spoke. You were always a great friend. I will always remember the Monday. RIP My old friend.
Words can’t describe how much my brother meant to me, but I’ll try. I was lucky to have him in my life as long as I did. He was always my biggest supporter and my best friend. I will always cherish the memories of our great times together and will miss him until the day I die.
RIP my good friend. You were a true gentleman and l will miss you very much. Love & thoughts to Katherine & all your family.
From the first day Tom introduced me to Mike, I was treated as a friend and sister. I can’t thank Mike enough for his generosity and thoughtfulness towards Tom, Jack, and me. You were taken from your children way too early but we will definitely help keep their memories of you alive.
Mike made bp Alaska a better place with his genuine care, big heart, and wonderful way of bringing out the best in all of us. I miss you Mike.
To Mike’s loved ones – I met Mike at work 4 years ago when i joined his team on secondment. I discovered in Mike an exceptionally experienced and knowledgeable professional – And yet, someone also extremely approachable, supportive and amiable. Please accept my sincere condolences – Paulo
Mike you will be so sorely missed. You encouraged me to join bp in Baku in 2010, and you were my mentor for many years thereafter. Your advice and counsel was always so well communicated and received.
Last time I saw you was in my garden in Thames Ditton, watching my honey bees busily gathering nectar and pollen and so I’ve given your family a jar of those same bees’ honey for them to enjoy.

Mike, dear friend and colleague! You will be missed by many in AGT Region! Thank you for being so generous, open minded, helpful and with great sense of humor! Sending prayers to your family. May you Rest in Peace.
Mike – my dear friend, we haven’t spoken for a while but I was so sorry to hear the sad news about your passing. I will always remember the times we worked together with warmth, affection and deep respect. Your consideration and concern for others was amazing. You were a true gentleman. My deep condolences to your wife Katherine and young family Elizabeth and Henry.
I smiled so broadly when I saw the picture you have chosen for this condolence book, that is how I will always remember Mike. We had such great fun together, I miss my dear friend deeply.
Life was not fair, he should have many many more days with you and you two beautiful kids and days out at the Stoop with me and his friends. It will never be the same as I walk through the gates to watch a Quinn’s game without him. He will forever be in my thoughts on those days … smiling, laughing and slagging me for fun.
Mike worked with me for decades in wells, production and S&OR always looking to help. A deeply competent professional that always had my back.
I write from Baku where he is fondly missed but remembered all over the BP world where he worked and left his mark.
God’s speed my dear friend. You will be missed.
We got to know Mike and Katherine well when we lived and worked in Alaska together – we were colleagues but quickly became friends and that’s where we saw how kind and thoughtful Mike was – he invited us to introduce our dog Poppy to new baby Elizabeth and to new puppy Juneau. Of course, we experienced some fantastic food and cocktails to boot.
Mike – taken far too soon and we’re so sorry for Katherine, the children and everyone who knew you. Rest in Peace.
We didn’t have a goodbye Mr.B, but you will be remembered. Love and thoughts to family and friends.
We extend our deepest sympathy to all of Mike’s family members and friends. Even though we never met, we heard so many nice, loving, and admirable things about Mike from Tom and Judith. May sweet memories and God’s peace and comfort help strengthen you in the days ahead.
Ray & Suzanne Fann
We were just getting to know you and your lovely family during these last 3 years. Mike, you always came across as being very kind and thoughtful every brief moment we had to speak with you. It is deeply saddening to see you go this fast and to leave your beautiful wife, daughter and son behind when they need you most. Our love and thoughts will remain with your family as we wish you Eternal Rest.
Maureen & Malumbo
Mike was such a kind and caring person. I’m so sorry to hear about your family’s loss.
I remember his adventurous spirit and he was so talented at everything he put his mind to. We lost touch over the years but I will always remember him fondly.
With caring thoughts,
