I have known Mikey for 30 Years. I called him Mikey from the old commercial :"He likes it, hey Mikey". We were neighbors for 20 some years.

I remember "white hots" on the grill - Genesee Cream Ale from the garage fridge - sitting on the back porch talking for hours, my wife Phyllis and I with him and Ro - the summer he and I built stockade fences around both our properties.

Most recently, he and I were lunch buddies. We would meet every so often to talk about our families (he was always so proud of his daughters), politics, and sadly Covid-19.

I lost a friend with Mikey's passing but he is with the love of his life now. RIP!

In 1978 I was a new college grad with my 1st engineering job at Xerox. Mike was a Sr Engineer. He always had time to answer my (many) questions. He never made me feel foolish for asking. I will always remember his kindness and willingness to share his knowledge. My sympathy goes to his family in this time of loss.
