RIP - Mike Buffington

He was a co-worker for many years, but he was much more. He was a friend, an agronomist, a world-traveler, a prankster, a joke-teller, and an upbeat voice in a world that's often downbeat. You can read more details about his life here. He will be missed by many.

Sorry to hear that Terry, he was there when I was but I never got to know him. My condolences to you and the family.

sadly, it seems we take surprisingly few pictures of our co-workers. i've asked a bunch of people within the company for photos of him.

so far, i've received about 20 pics. mostly from Sales, of course. when i've heard from everyone, i'll put a slideshow together of them.

I was just skimming through the 'net and reminiscing with my children about their Papa when I found this...Thank you for the beautiful tribute on your site.

Hi Julie; thanks for stopping by. It was a privilege to work with Mike at TKI.

i didn't travel much with him, but i did spend a couple days with him one time in Las Vegas at a trade show. i got to see the non-company side of Mike, and he was a warm, caring, teddy-bear type of man. it made a lasting impression on me as to the real Mike.
