We are so sad to hear of the loss of Michael. I have not seen Michael in a number of years. I do have many fond memories of our time growing up in New Brighton. Please know that your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

II have written so many chapters of my life with Mike, it started back in 1984 and was going strong since and my best friend is now resting in peace with the Lord. My heartfelt condolences go out to Wendy and all of the family. I will miss him so much. I will pray for comfort and peace in the coming months for all of us.
I met Mike in the late 80s, and one of my first thoughts was “Wow! This is not a shy man!” He definitely had a presence. When he walked into a room, you knew it. When he talked, you listened. But he wasn’t intimidating. He was always kind with an easy smile. Getting Mike to laugh and smile was easy. It came naturally.
There are many fond memories of Mike, Wendy, other friends and me going to Steelers games, concerts, and just relaxing at their home. He was a generous and kind man, and very hospitable. When I visited Mike and Wendy, I always felt welcome and at home.
Mike’s time was way too short, but he still left a positive impression on this world and he will be missed. Rest in peace, my friend.
We are so sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
