Mike and I met downtown at a lunch place he dined at while working at the Detroit people mover. I was a server, Mike and I became friends and we have kept in contact through all these past 12 years. Mike always told me about his family, his children, wife, and especially his grandchildren who brought him so much joy. No matter what happened mike always told me “ don’t worry, I’m a strong Irishman!” What a kind, compassionate and good natured person he was. I was lucky to have know him and to have his as a friend, a friend, that I will miss dearly talking to! Thought and prayers to the entire Joyce family and Mike, I will always think of you and smile.

Michael was my busboy at Corfu Restaurant before he became a great cook. He always took care of us girls and made sure noone bothered us. I will always be greatful that I had a chance to meet this wonderful man. He kept me positive when my husband got sick even on the days that he himself wasn't feeling so great. You will be forever in my heart and soul.

It’s so hard for me to write this out.
Uncle Mike and Aunt Sandy, were a huge part of my childhood and adult life.
All of my memories of Uncle Mike are full of laughter, sarcasm, and fun.
One time at a family members wedding he asked me to dance. As we’re dancing he says “When you get married, that man, is going to be lucky to have you.” As a kid, this really stuck with me. It boosted my confidence, it made me feel like I had some worth. I wish I would’ve told him how much that one comment meant to me.
My heart breaks for my Aunt Sandy, and their children, Michael, Matthew and Jessica, even for his 2 amazing grandchildren. He was taken way too soon. I love you all.
Karen, Ken and kids

Dear Sandy, Michael, Matthew and Jessica.
We are so very sorry for the loss of your husband and father, Michael. Sandy, I know that you were the love of Michael's life. He loved and cared so much for all of you. He considered himself to be a "tough old Irishman", but, he had a big soft spot for all of you. He will be missed, but, his memory will live on.
Love, Maureen and Stephen Gareau
