I met Mike in the fourth grade at Conant elementary school in Concord NH he lived just behind my house. Mike was quick witted and funny he always had the latest school gossip. Mike and I both bought new 10 speed bikes in the early 70’s and did a number of long rides around Concord area. Mike and I also worked together at a restaurant called the Lobster House washing dishes and busing tables when we were 16. My family had a pool membership and Mike liked hitting the pool after work for a swim and a beverage. Mike and I went to different high schools but were still friends. We lost touch in the college years when he went to UNH then in the Navy some 40 years ago. He will be missed. Rest In Peace Mike .

So sorry to read of your brother's passing. I believe that I may have met him once while you were living in Jensen's. Hard to lose family. My thoughts are with you,

My sympathy goes out to Mike's family at this time. Even though I did not get to meet Mike in person, he was a great employee here at the YMCA. He will be missed by many.
