My deepest condolence to Michael’s Family, When I First met Mike was about 50+ years ago as a young apprentice in Newark and he would take us wonder his wing and explained the correct plumbing procedures that was the pride he had for Local #24. Over the course of my apprenticeship I work approx 10-15 projects with Michael and my fondest memory was instead of treating me as my Journeyman Plumber but more like a mentor and a second Dad. We should give him all our love as he is with the Father now
