Mike we met many years ago. A simple hello turned into a great friendship. That friendship grew into a Brotherhood. I met with you every time we where in town. We shared many great stories about work, our family's and the past. Gave each other a big hug until the next time. Truly going to miss you my brother.

I first met Mike nearly 20 years ago. I immediately felt like I had known him for years as Ron had spoken of him often and with great respect.
I don't remember the occasion, but Mike didn't really need an occasion to bring people together. I was a total stranger to him, but was received into his home as if I were family.
Months or years would pass between visits, but that feeling of "family" came back every time spoke to him.

Mike is now, and always will be, missed by many. All of whom are family.

I have been friends with Mike since high school. He was always the first to lend a hand or offer the shirt off his back if necessary. My health has declined in the past few years and he was always kind and supportive to me during some difficult times. You will be missed Mike. Rest in peace.

Mike was always the guy that remembered to invite me out or just over to his house for the porch sitting or pool in the basement. Even though he knew I was mostly a home body - he kept on me even if I did not make the past 3 or 4 events - he never gave up and always offered the invite. He never gave up on anyone he cared about. I always felt welcome in his presence and I always had a good time with him around. It was always amazing, as a single father myself, to hear Mike talk about his boys and all the great thing s they were doing with the same reverence I have for my boys. There was no amount of over-time he would not take on ... no amount of sleep he would not lose to make sure his kids were given the chance to be great in any one of their endeavors. To a great father, friend and co-worker I cannot say enough - I'm going to miss you Mike.
