Mike was an amazing man that was loved by everyone he met. Mike and I worked together for many years and remained friends even when we stopped working together. I appreciated Mikes friendship greatly and will miss talking with him. God Speed Mike.

Tim and I offer our deepest condolences to the Denison family. Mike is my oldest friend. We have known each other since Sixth grade, at Erlangen Elementary School. We reconnected again, many years after high school, while he was stationed in Utah. It means a lot that we stayed in touch ever since, and I will cherish the memories. Rest easy, Shaggy.

Shaggy Michael Denison,

My very very special friend, my brother, our lovely family member. Our ways crossed a very long time ago. We shared special times, though I‘d wished we could have shared many more years my special brother. Thank you so much being a loving husband to my sweet cousin Gennie. I admired your loving way for each other. We will miss you very much Shaggy, but I am sure we‘ll meet each other again, just not now. But some time later.
Until then Shaggy Micheal Denison
In deep spirit and honor to you with special and deep Love

Shaggy you and I will meet again, when we're least expecting it. One day in some far of place, I will recognize your face, I will not say goodbye my friend.

For you and I will meet again. A friend like you are hard to find. In a lifetime you only get a few.
And when you find them, you always know them by sight and heart alone.

Thank you Dear Friend, for making so many ordinary moments extraordinary.

Love you Bro

I am so glad I was able to meet Mike and his wife through our affiliation with Nurnberg High School, a school we all attended at different times as BRATS.

We were able to share some great times at two high school reunions as well as the frequent interaction on social media like Facebook.

What I will remember about Mike is that he always had a smile, positive things to say, and the ability to make you feel authentically welcomed.

I am so grateful for the very competitive Words with Friends games we played, as well as some insightful, respectful, and in-depth online chats we had.

Although we occasionally disagreed as we discussed politics, the banter was always respectful and helped to build bridges between us, serving to strengthen our friendship. I will miss these discussions that I thoroughly enjoyed.

When taken together, our friendship grew, as well as my complete respect for Mike.

It become clear that he was a great father, a loving husband, and an outstanding human being. I will miss his friendship.

I am heart-broken as it all happened so quickly. I am still wrapping my head around how quickly things can change, reinforcing the idea that we need to make each moment in this life count.

May Mike rest in peace.

🙏❤🙏

Mike (“Shaggy”) and I were good friends in high school in Germany. When I finally saw him again in Texas a few years back, I met his beautiful wife, Gennie. I knew instantly that they were absolutely made for each other. Shaggy was always such a cool guy to hang out with. He was very caring also. This world lost a good one. 😢Gennie - Please call if you ever need any of us who attended the Nurnberg High School. We will always be family. ❤️
