I'm sorry to learn of the passing of Mike. I think Mike was one of our classmates that started in Kindergarten and was with us until graduation in 1967. Mike always had a smile on his face despite all the difficulties he faced in elementary and high school. May the family find peace in all good memories. His classmates will miss him and remember him often.

Roman was a wonderful father, grandfather, mentor and friend. He gave great advice and was very knowledgeable on how to fix just about anything. Roman would do anything for anyone as he often put his own needs and wants aside to take care of his family. He is greatly missed and will always be in our daily thoughts. We love you! Until we meet again….
