My condolences to Michael's family. I have to go back 60 years but I do remember clearly the exceptional relationship that existed between him and his brother Joe. I've never known any other person more considerate and protective of a younger brother than Joe was toward Michael. I know how endearing Michael was to all who were fortunate in knowing him.

Mike was a great person. He was our Inspection Trooper at Riggins Company, Poquoson for many years. Mike was not just our Trooper but a friend as well. He will be sorely missed.
