So sorry to hear about Mike's death. I knew him at Ranson Jr. High. Mike was always nice to me whenever I saw him at school. The last time I saw him was at a Rebel Rousers Christmas Party at Ken and Barbara Dresser's house. My deepest goes out to Mike's family.

“The Mayor” was a great friend and we are still in disbelief to hear of his passing. He gave us so many wonderful memories of our early days at Vineyard Point. While nothing can fill the hole created by his loss, we will always have the joy and laughter he left behind. Mike may be gone from our sight, but he will never be gone from our hearts.

My neighbor my friend. First you were the one that taught me everything when i got my first boat and never made fun of me for how bad I was, you came out and rescued me a few times but I did get to do the same for you a few times once I knew what I was doing lol. At least a couple days a week, ended my days just hanging out with you and many other neighbors on your patio. Great conversation and yes usually a couple cocktails... so miss those days! To this day when my dog goes by and someone is there, he has to stop for dog treats... the same container is still in the same spot! So many laughs and adventures. My heart goes out to your family, may God give them peace. Rest in peace my friend

Mike was one of the first people to come up to us when we moved in across the street! Over time we would always talk and we always said we would cook some steaks on the grill when it warms up! After his surgery i started mowing the yard every week to try and help the family. Mike would always be sitting at the garage to thank me for helping him out! Told him that's what friends do! I will think of him everytime the grass grows tall and green! I'm so glad i had the opportunity to meet such a great man! It's not going to be the same pulling out of my driveway and getting that wave from him as i pull away! Mike will truly be missed. I am a better man for knowing him! Thanks for the kind words, steak dinner, and friendship! It's not goodbye but see you later buddy!
