They traveled the world together and had many great adventures including the greatest of all, parenthood. They shared the love of two sons, who both meant the world to Mike. He was so proud of his boys and served as their mentor in their endeavors. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all that he loved.

Brother you were my first roommate in the army, my first friend away from my family and loved ones back in the U.S., and truly my mentor when it came to tough times. When my mom died, you told me it was as if your own mom had died. You never let a moment go by without calling me to check on me. The times were had and the memories were shared in the army and out will always be my highlights of my life that I will always tell my family and children. You were my brother from a different mother and I will truly miss you more than you know. I will always remember the good times. Keep the beer cold for us in heaven. We will all see you again one day. I love you brother. Rest easy. Batteries not included!
