My grandpa was a kind, caring and generous man. I remember him taking my mom, my sister and me to McDonalds many times and also having perogie dinners at his place. He also taught me how to play Apples and Oranges on his computer. I love you grandpa. Always.

As a former colleague of Mike's at MM Robinson HS, I always loved to have discourse with Mike over any current topic ( Usually school related gripes), because he could always give his opinion with a dose of reason and kindness. A gift that I will never forget.
