A cheerful person, always made things neat and organized at home, a good worker at his employment at Social Security.
I was privileged to work with him at SSA. Mike was the person who was genuinely interested in people and they responded to his warm caring nature.
He volunteered along with Jan at the Gift of Hope hospice where he made connections with the homeless and sick men for whom the Missionaries of Charity cared . One young person there dying, with no hope of a cure, was adopted by Mike. Michael, true to his loyal nature, stayed by his bedside until the bitter end. His dear friend, Sister Pietra, made him shed a tear when she was reassigned by her superior.

He would sometimes find humor in the everyday things. He said, "Why do salesman always want to show you "a shoe" ? Don't they realize you need two of them?" That was Michael, he would leave you with a smile.
