I remember meeting Michael for the first time on the Sea Gate Beach in the 60's when we were in our teens. He came over to listen to my transistor radio. Our paths crossed several times after that as I became friends with his sisters. And then later on in Facebook. I enjoyed our conversations and will miss them. My condolences to the family. May his memory be a blessing.

When Jackie and you got together at Dennys to bring in 2019 and I came by to be part of the celebration.....I had hoped & prayed for one another to have fulfillment, contentment, peace and more as a brighter, better new year, than you've ever had before. Needless to say, Tony & I are saddened with the news of your passing. Rest in peace Michael, we offer your family our sincerest condolences.
