I just found out about this today, I remember him well, his Father Carl was my Father S Robert Fawber's Boss and he was always very nice to me and a happy go lucky guy way back then. Sad to find out about this today, I hope his Wife and kids are doing ok.

My God it seems like just yesterday we were working together at Connecticut National Life. I often wondered where Mike got to and what he was up to. Hoping there was a fine reunion with Carl and Gail. My deepest sympathies and love to the family.

Lynn and Lindsey, the world is a little sadder without Mike in it. Never one to pass on a joke, he'd always make me laugh. He's left his mark in this world and I knew Lynn that you were in love when you told me all those years ago how you thought he was the "one". After 31 years side by side, your love will go on forever. Now he's God's angel keeping watch over you both. I hope you can find strength knowing that you'll be together again some day. You are in my thoughts and prayers, much love to you both.

So sorry for your loss, Mike was a very special person. The first time I met him, was at Hop meadow, he had just got back , and entered the pool area, Every one stopped and all of his hundreds of Mothers and Fathers, raced to greet him. He looked so proud, dressed in full uniform. It took hours until he had a chance to sit and talk with Carl and myself, he truly was the big brother I never had. He had time for the little kids . And as the time passed he always did. I will never forget that day, we went home, only to return that night for dinner, and Mike was still there surrounded by people. He was a true gem and will be missed

Lynn & Lindsey, My thoughts and prayers are with you both during this very difficult time. It was you and Mike that prompted Joe and I to move to Florida. You always showed us a great time here. Now Mike can be your guardian angel keeping a vigil eye on both of you.
