Mike was not only a wonderful friend, But, we considered him Family.
He was a man of many wonders,
He was a great hunter, Fisherman,
And a good store teller that kept us entertained.

We enjoyed so many wonderful dinners get together’s and him and Jo hosting Super Bowl parties.
We will miss you dear friend and hope you rest in peace.
Much love Donnie and JACKIE

I met Mike and Jo when we moved to Fort Myers from NH our backyards touched. We were instant friends we both enjoyed hunting fishing and family. We swapped most of our hunting and fishing stories and occasionally went shooting together. I always admired Mike's family values and would go to mass with him when we visited after moving back to New Hampshire. I will certainly miss Mike and his easy going attitude. There is no doubt Mike went directly to Heaven. I know he will share with me all the good fishing spots he finds when I arrive in Heaven also.
