To the Price Family,

Our deepest condolences! Mike was such a wonderful cheerful man who loved popping in to our cafe for his trusty long black filled only to his H2O line he'd marked on the side of his keep cup. Always loved the chats we had with him. We are thinking of you all at this time.
Much love
Jess and the Yellow House Team xx

I worked with Mike and his Proaxiam team at BNZ credit cards on the Global Plus card launch and thoroughly enjoyed and valued his energy, passion and commitment and his sense of humour too. Always arrived and left with a smile even during the tough moments. With deepest sympathy. Jenny Miller
My sincere condolences for the loss of Mike. Ray and I had many a laugh with him over a glass of wine while watching TheChase…….and commiserating over health issues!

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Mike at PEXA. I will always remember his vibrant personality and the way he cared about everybody. I remember fondly one catch up in Sydney over a bottle of red wine while Mike was transiting to NZ. He will be missed by many. Sending warm hugs and thoughts to you all at this sad time.

Meghan. Thinking of you and your family today and appreciate the opportunity to attend the service remotely. A toast to ‘The Professor’ - such a huge character and a central part of the PEXA culture and my experience there. Many great memories. Take care.

Beautiful service. Still in shock by this news and in great sadness. Mike was so generous, inclusive and kind to all. I have wonderful memories with Mike the professor but my favourite is drinks in Bali because why not?! You were honest and found ways to make sense of things. Thanks for sharing a part of you with me. RIP Mike

A beautiful service and great to hear all the stories from everyone. Mike took me under his wing 20 years ago, when I was a 19 year old who thought I knew everything about technology. Mike was a great mentor and friend. He will be missed and always thought of.

Thank you for letting us share this celebration. He was a great friend and mentor making my years in Duesseldorf such fun. I provided the comedy videos which we would often watch at his after work having concocted something in the kitchen. I’m sure you’ve heard from others about the legendary parties at that time! Love to Sara too. Rx
