  1. My condolences to Mike’s family. I am unable to attend his service, but I wanted to let you know how I felt about Mike. I was deeply saddened by his passing. I worked with Mike at D60 for several years. I was the secretary at that department. Mike was a very hard working man and never messed up. For me, this made my job easier! Most of all he was the sweetest guy ever. Always polite and even after I retired, he would always go out of his way to say hello. He was one of the “Good Guys!” God Bless you Mike, we will miss you.

  2. I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember Mike as being very kind to my dad, his Uncle Pete. Prayers for all of you.

  3. My condolences to my cousins on the loss of Cousin Mike. Shortly after I retired from the military I got to talk to Mike. We promised each other we would get together real soon. Sadly, we never did. Mike was always one of “the good guys”. I know my Aunt & Uncle welcomed him to life everlasting. RIP, Mike.
