I was so sorry and shocked to hear about this. He was always so giving and Always helped out with any charity. When Niky and I were kids, he took us all over the place as well as her Mom. We always had so much fun and he was always such a jokester!!! He loved to play jokes on us and we would always crack up laughing. His contagious smile always brought light into any room and will never forget that. You always made sure Niky and I were ok or what we were doing. From dying our hair in red Koolaide In the basement laundry tub, to many other things, he never got mad at us. Ever. He always treated me like a 2nd daughter and I am so sorry for all your family’s loss. Prayers for all of you at this time. I know he is Heaven and is truly an Angel. You will never be forgotten. Love, Chrissy

Remembering all the trips to Vegas, the many wonderful, fun filled cruises as well as the meals at "Fergies, and Franks in Wyandotte and the many, many, many plates full of crab at Harbor House that he and David would put away trying to see who could eat more while the butter just rolled down thier chins...Ahh the Good Old Days. I can see the 2 of them smiling down on us all. Looking foward to seeing them all again one day. "My sincere condolences for your loss." "I'm sending my love to you and your family." "I will be keeping you in my thoughts, and holding you in my heart."

We will miss Mike. When my sisters and my brother would go to Las Vegas we would meet up with Mike and Karen for lunch. He was a super energetic person and always so positive. He was our first cousin and it was nice to reconnect with him after we moved from Michigan to Hawaii and lost touch with our relatives for many years. My best memories are going to their house and all the adults would play cards and all of us kids would play and run around their farm together. Best memories ever! Rest in peace Mike, love you!

Ron and Mike became close when we partnered together at the Convention Center. He always fattened us up with brownies and cookies. He had such a light spirit and made friends wherever he went. We always enjoyed our Monday night dinners with Mike and Karen at the Silverton with our Strawberry shortcake. He will be dearly missed and our hearts are with you Karen during this hard time. He will be missed by so many. We know he's looking down and will be there with us on our next cruise. We love you both.
