Michael was a friend and fellow band member at C.K. McClatchy High School. He played alto saxophone. I remember his kind, caring, manner, humor and beautiful smile. Thank you, Mike, for your service to our country. You will always be remembered with a fond smile. Sincere condolences to David, who I knew at CKM, and the Groza family.

Michael was a friend and fellow bandmember at C.K. McClatchy in the early 1980's. He played alto saxophone. Michael was a gentle soul - quiet, humorous, caring, with a beautiful smile and kind manner. I remember him fondly and am so sorry to hear of his passing. Sincere condolences to David, who I knew at the same time, and the Groza family.

Met Mike at Sacramento City College, in 1987. Long curly hair, dressed in nice clothes with his Louis Vuitton duffle bag. We studied and joked around, in the library. He drove blue Mazda RX7, he loved that car. His friend Jesse let him borrow a U2 Joshua Tree cassette. With that smile, knodding his head, he would sing Still Haven't Found. He partnered up with a friend and opened a video store in Downtown. Last time I saw him, he told me to watch a great movie, Hamburger Hill. Great guy, great memories.

As a former colleague of Mikes for many years, I am proud to say I served with him. He was the epitome of professionalism and made those around him better. Mike was one you would never have to worry about...double/triple check his lesson plan to insure the most up-to-date doctrine was available to those he taught.

I had many good times with Mike, too many to mention. Countless hours of laughter, he was a great man.

May you rest forever peacefully in His eternal kingdom.
