Michael ~ I have so many memories over the years, from being your little sister who talked you into driving Becky and me to and from dances on Friday nights, and then becoming an adult and a friend that you hung out with just shooting pool, playing cards and going “fancy” on New Year's Eve.

You made me laugh with your silly antics (the claw at the window!) and your quick wit and smile. That crazy sense of humor was such a big part of you, but you were also a sweet, caring man who reached out to me with compassion and understanding when I needed it.

This past summer's vacation was so special to us all – having the time alone to talk and share stories. I hope you understood just how much you meant to me. While I know I am going to miss you, I can't help but be happy that you are reunited once again with Vida.

Always in my heart,

Brother today I am filled with many emotions. I am so glad that you are at peace with the love of your life Vida, with Mom and Dad, David, Tim and Barbara. I am also sad for myself because I will so miss your smile and wit and humor that could light up a room and make any party fun. The kids always looked forward to seeing Crazy Uncle Michael because of your funny antics and shaking their hands so long they felt like they would fall off. I am so blessed that we got to have the most fabulous family vacation this summer that I will treasure forever. All those amazing events we did together. Mostly though, I will miss the quiet time in the basement.Just me and you playing pool and darts and talking. All my great memories of growing up your little sister will stay close in my heart and give me comfort. Thanks for being a great big brother.
Love Always,

You lived life, and that is what is important. You left memories for all of us. Different ages, different memories.

Making bologna sandwiches for you and getting paid a quarter - we felt rich!!

I remember going to New Years Eve overnight dinner and dance downtown at the Netherland Hilton, they were so much fun. Boy could you dance!

Family Christmas, card parties at Barbara's house (Vida always won!) You always had some silly antic or comment.

I will miss you,

Although you are gone from this life you have left me with many great memories to look back on.

- building snow forts in the backyard (you packed a mean snowball)
- toy soldier battles in the upstairs bedroom
- wiffle ball in the backyard
- card games at the dining room table ( It didn't matter that I was a girl)
- listening to your many caddyshack adventures
- backyard croquet games ( I particularly remember that you enjoyed sending my ball in to Mom's rose bushes or to the end of the yard )

You were a good brother to me and I will miss you.

Always your sister,

I was saddened to hear of Mike's passing. I only knew Mike a couple of years but it was a pleasure talking with him. He was always upbeat and had a positive attitude. He always saw the good in people. It was an honor to know him, he was a true gentleman. He will truly be missed. May God bless your family during this time and always.

I am very saddened to hear the news. I met Mike a number of years ago on a
trip to WPAFB. It was clear by the Industrial base projects and products we received Mike was exceptionally
diligent and capable. It was easy to tell he gave a great effort in his
work and was highly professional.

This is a loss, most importantly to his family, but to the larger DoD
community to who he was so helpful.

I was fortunate to see Mike in early February when I visited him at the Azimuth offices. When I saw him he was happy, energetic, and had glowing comments about his team. Mike will be missed! God bless!
