Leigh,
I had lunch with my Dad yesterday and I was shocked when he told me that Mike had passed away. Of all the people I have known, he was one who was always so full of life and humor. He possessed the great combination of intelligence, wit and ability. I learned a lot from working with and for him.
He was a great mentor and friend. I am so sorry for your loss.

Leigh -

Mike was the type of husband, father, grandfather, uncle, colleague, and friend we should all aspire to emulate. 45 years of friendship packed into too few and too small bits of time will nonetheless always be fondly remembered. Thank the Almighty for having us cross paths those many years ago.

Mike - Go rest in peace in the knowledge you have left us all the better off for having shared the planet with you for a little while.

Mike was my mentor at Kennedy Space Center when I was in high school. He became a beloved friend as well. Then I was blessed to be introduced to his family. He and Leigh, Chris and Michael became my home away from home while I attended school in Orlando. I am so sad to hear of Mike leaving us for now. I was unable to attend his celebration of life, but I heard it was a beautiful expression of his life and the way he touched so many lives in this world. I will miss him deeply.

So sorry to learn of Mike's passing. What a light unto this World he was with his infectious laugh, smile, intellect, love of family and people. We were blessed by his leadership and friendship at NASA Kennedy Space Center with his care and respect for the workforce, particularly the labor unions and the value they brought to the Center. His negotiation skills were unparalleled, working in the best interest of all concerned. Our love, deep sympathy and thoughts are with his family and loved ones. Thank you for the wonderful life Mike shared with us all.

Dear Leigh,

We are greatly saddened for your loss of Mike. He was an incredibly gracious classmate and fellow teammate going through school and he carried that legacy as long as I knew him. We were so blessed to have Mike during those formative school years as he was a natural leader with kindness and empathy. Being of Scottish ancestry, Mike was the first person to introduce me to pizza! Now I'm married to an Italian! Can't help but love the guy.

Leigh, we offer our sympathy to you and your family for the loss of his love in your lives. Our thoughts are with you and pray that Peace be with you and your family.

I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. Mike sounds like he was a very special person...I wish I could have met him. I’ve been going thru your Grandmother’s pictures and found some special ones. I’ll message them , if I can’t include them here. Thinking of you at this difficult time...hang on to all of your wonderful memories.
Love, Judy

Dear Leigh, Chris and Mike,

We were so sad to learn of Mike's passing.

Mike and I were from the same home town, Youngstown, Ohio, but we never met until we were at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Once we did meet, it seemed like we had been friends forever. Mike had a way of making you feel like that.

I first met Leigh and Mike's family through conversations with Mike, because he always talked about them and had them on his mind. After meeting them in person, my wife Pam and I knew why they were so special to him.

We were lucky enough to share many fun outings with Mike and Leigh, and enjoyed every moment. We often fondly recall the trip to Biloxi, Mike's affection for the nickel slot machine, and the invitations to the "mouse" as he liked to call Disney.

Mike was a special person, with a special smile, a one of a kind, and loved by everyone. The world will be darker without Mike's shining light.

With Loving Sympathy,
Ken and Pam Aguilar

Every once in a while we are fortunate enough to cross paths with someone who really understands what the meaning of life is.
Mike and I met 11 yrs ago in my Palm Coast clinic and we instantly hit it off talking about the Florida Gators!! He introduced me and my, then fiance, to the family and we've had an amazing relationship ever since. He used to tell me "Tell Catherine to come for Thanksgiving, and I guess you can come too..." He is a shining example of a Husband, Father, Friend, and of course Doting Papa. We love you and miss you Mike... Our thoughts and prayers are with the Delvesco Family
