So many great memories with this kind, fun loving, hard working man. We worked together for many years until my wife and I moved to Florida. Mike was one of our first visitors to come stay with us in Florida to make sure I made the right move for my family. May you Rest In Peace Mike, and may the Lord hold you in the palm of his hand. Our sincere condolences to the family. Tom and Rose Gordon

Peggy and Mike are our dearest friends for over 40 years. We watched our kids grow up, had so much fun together and made a lifetime of wonderful memories.

Michael was a devoted father and had a wicked sense of humor. He loved his Maggie to the end.

Everyone who knew him has a hole in their hearts right now.

Some of my fondest memories of Michael are how he loved his grandchildren and made them smile.
