To all of the Carbone family:
I just learned of Mike's passing. We are still in FL and don't get news in a timely manner. I just wanted to say that I will always remember all the fun times that he and I had in the "pent house" at MPB. I will miss him.

To the Carbone Family

I want to express my sorrow to the Carbone Family for the death of Michael a most loved family member.

He will be long remembered by family and friends as a wonderful man.

I first met Mike in the 70s. I later went to work for Mike in the Defense Logistics Agency in the 80s and 90s. He was my supervisor, mentor, and friend. He was fun to work with because he had a great love for life.

I will say many prayers for Mike and his family at this sad time.

I will miss Mike but will always remember he had a wonderful life.
