To my dearest Uncle Mike.

I cannot believe God has taken you so young. You fought a good fight and your at ease now.
My deepest condolences to Mary Teresa, Patrick, Michael and Thomas. Your 3 daughter in laws, your 9 grandchildren, your 4 brothers, and sister and to Nellie.

My trips to croke park will never be the same again. When i used to ring you before the game and during half time. And the day after the match as and we would be chatting about the game and the players with just the odd bad word thrown in!!
I have fond treasured memories of all the times you came over home and the time I went to New York.
I'm sorry I cannot be there to say Goodbye and it breaks my heart not been there. But I know you will understand as it wouldn't easy with the 2 kids.

Keep shining down on all of us, tell everyone we were asking for them. And if there are cars in heaven make sure you get an automatic and not a stick shift!!

I love you and I always will. Till we meet again Love your niece Joanne, Denis, Donnacha and áine xxx
Rest In Peace Uncle Mike xx

Mike Stack was the most decent and warm person in East Durham, and that is saying a lot in a town of decent and warm people. I've had the privilege of performing in his pub many times over the years, and the even bigger privilege of sitting down outside in the sun with him just chatting and catching up on news and events, and friends and family....He was always there, and always welcoming, and will be sorely missed...Our most sincere condolences to Nelly, Theresa, Mary, Tommy, Mike, and all....from Don Smith and Jack Driscoll

All at John Gallin and Son are truly blessed by Michael - as we are gifted to share his sons on a daily basis. Mike and Pat are two extremely fine gentlemen and some of this has to be because of the Father that raised them ! I did not have the pleasure of meeting Mr Stack, but see a legacy that he should/would be proud of in his two sons.
