Mike was always a good friend. He was a pleasure to deal with, first many years ago as a supplier, and then in later years as a coworker. He will be missed by many. My condolences to Mike's family and friends. My thoughts and prayers are with them at this time.

Not sure you remember me...a voice from the past out of our childhood. We lost touch as we moved on with our own lives but was saddened to read of Michael's passing. Remembering all the fun things we did together as grade schoolers living on Ridge Ave. Praying for all of you!
