My deepest sympathy to Dr. L's kids and wife; I'm a Pediatrician who worked in one of the same clinics as Michael and we always shared a good laugh and a good cup of coffee. He also was my own Urologist when I had renal stones. He always shared stories of his wife, kids, the dogs, his parents, life as a young man. He will be sorely missed.

I would like to send my condolences to Michael’s family. I only knew Mike as my doctor but I considered him a friend. This may sound odd but I enjoyed my doctor visits and our talks about everything. He will be missed.

Condolences to Michael’s wife and children. I have fond memories of our childhood experiences, especially the time he took me to the Emerson, Lake, and Palmer concert in Cincinnati back in 1973. What a special time we had together. Will miss him. Love, your cousin from Milford, Ohio. Cole Cottone

Always made my day when I saw that I would have the pleasure of working with him. All his patients loved him. He made the day so less stressful and was a very confident and Professional Physician. I feel very lucky that I got to work with him

To Chris, Grace and Isaac-
We are so saddened to hear of Dr. L’s passing. May God comfort you in your loss.
We will always remember the many years working side by side in the office. There was a lot of laughter, some sad times but we always had good times. Caring for patients with compassion and humor was Doctor’s goal and that he did. He took his time with each one.
The 3 happiest days in his life were when he married Chris, the day his sweet Grace was born and when his son, Isaac was born. We rejoiced with him!
Doctor was not only our employer but a great friend. We have so many memories as we know you do. Keep those close to your heart. As we will.

Michael was a very special person who I knew in high school & in college. He was a super talented musician, who could play numerous instruments. He was also a very intelligent man in addition to having a photographic mind, which he proved to me on one occasion when he handed me a book & said turn to any page and I will tell you exactly word for word what it says. Sure enough, he recited the entire page word for word , I was amazed to say the least.
Michael also had a very special knack for making people laugh and feel comfortable being with him.
I am very very sad to hear that he has passed
away . My heartfelt condolences to his wife, children & relatives. He was one of a kind special man.

Mike played sousaphone when we were both in the school band at Milford High School. But I got to know him better when he moved to work at Proctor Hospital in Peoria, IL where I was already living and our mothers put us in touch. I introduced Mike to some of my friends there and we much enjoyed his wry sense of humor. He gradually became occupied with work and new friends and I moved away from Peoria. But I fondly remember his zest for fun, his intelligence and his creativity. No doubt his absence will leave a vast emptiness in the lives of his family and those in his work and social circles. I hope they find comfort in many happy memories. He was indeed a very special individual.
