Our family grew up across the park from Mike, Willie and their folks (Chick and Joe were older then), and they were some of the kindest people you could ever meet. (My sister, Debby, was the same age as Willie and Mike was a year younger than I.) Mike had the character to be the only one in his family to go to Highlawn Presbyterian Church. He got up every Sunday and walked there to worship. He was, I am sure, a good man, and the world is a little sadder for his passing.

I WORKED WITH DR.HAUGHT IN THE E.R. AT R.G.H. IN THE EARLY 1980'S AND THEN IN ENDO FOR MANY YEARS. HE WAS THE SMARTEST MAN THAT I HAVE EVER MET. HE WAS KIND AND CARING TO STAFF AND HIS PATIENTS. HIS KINDNESS WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN AND HE WILL BE TRULY MISSED. TO THE FAMILY I HAVE TO SAY YOU WERE LUCKY TO HAVE THIS MAN AS YOUR HUSBAND,FATHER,AND GRANDFATHER.

Very sorry to learn of Mike's passing. We worshipped together at Highlawn Presbyterian Church . I remember Mike as a good athlete in both football and basketball at Huntington East. A very talented individual with a kind and humble spirit. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Willie and the Haught Family. God Bless all.

So very sad to hear of Mike’s passing. So many memories of him as a young person next door to me on Merrill Avenue. How many times did that basketball come into our yard? My deepest sympathies to the family and especially to Willie and Joe. God bless you all.

Michael was my special Dr. for many years. I will miss him. He and my husband both had their offices at Beckley Medical Arts for many years. Their professionalism is slowly fading from our culture. To his family, we are so sorry for your pain and the loss of a fine man.

My husband and I have been a patient of Dr. Haught since 1992. We last saw him in January. He wasn't just our doctor but he also became a friend that we could talk to. Our fondest memory was about 15 years ago. My husband scheduled to be scoped at 9 that morning. They found Dr. Haught in the cafeteria talking with other doctors around 1 that afternoon. He just got caught up in talking. Our thoughts are you and your family.
