Met Mike at Levitz when he transferred to Woodbridge. He used to like to be called Mr. Chippendale saying he used to be a Chippendale dancer but retired because of the invention of acryllic nails. He made you laugh till you cried. We just spoke about the Mets , his favorite Polish beer a kid at Levitz introduced him to and his bride Sue. He loved his family, wrestling, the NY Mets and Saab convertibles. I have few friends and he could always make my day brighter. God bless you Chip. I miss you already.

Michael will always be a dear cousin. We played together since we were little kids. He was my mischievous "big brother." When we were together at our grandparents home in Pennsylvania , we ran around the home and neighborhood like "a bunch of Indians." He had a knack for getting his cousins into trouble. Yet our Baba always knew who to blame.
We didn't need to be in constant contact over the years, yet all it took was a phone call to be together as cousins again. We kept up on each other's families, and his door was always open for a visit.
Michael was smart, funny, and mostly one heck of an interesting guy.
Jeannette and I have good memories of Michael and his wonderful family.
(And, who can forget his love for those dogs?)
We wish all of you...
Love and kisses.

Brax to Mike. Missed already, witty, funny, never shy, got him out to one wrestling match this season, wished it had been more, like the old days, when our boys were younger. Loved his on going taunts of Mugs.
A good friend till the end. My condolences to his family and friends.

Ol’man.. What a great man with a good family. In the day he knew everyone in NJ wrestling. It was always a pleasure hanging with him when our sons wrestled. A fond memory of mine is when we stayed at the beer garden until the fair closed. My deepest condolence to the Stoppay family

Mike was a very sweet and funny guy! He loved the Jets and hated the Giants! He was a good friend and a very good salesman. He will be missed!
