He made me feel at home as he welcome me into his circle of friends and family. He was an amazing, warm-hearted person. His loss will be felt and his life will be remembered.

  • My condolences to Mike’s wife and family… I got to know Mike for about a year now… he came to my shop every two weeks like clock work for a hair cut. I was very saddened to have learned about his passing. I knew something was wrong when I hadn’t seen him but was hoping for something different. Mike was a great guy, great personality, and I’m sure he was a great friend and husband. I will miss his stories of club drama and beer meetings..RIP mike my friend…

    I worked with Mike for many years but I only worked under his leadership for few months he was kind compassionate leader who cared a lot about his team
    Mike’s passing is going to sting for a long time may he rest in peace

  • Mike was a great man who will be missed dearly. I was fortunate enough not only to have known Mike but to be able to call him a brother. We hit it off instantly because of our east coast connection. Mike is from New Jersey and I am from New York so he would always make fun of my accent. Shortly after meeting Mike I was instantly drawn to him and I knew he would be a close friend. Mike was a very charming guy and he always put you in a good mood. There were a few times that I met up with him and I was having problems at home or with my job or whatever the case was Mike had a way of showing you how to look at things in a different light and uplifting your mood. He talked me out of several bad days and got me laughing. It truly hurts me that the last few months of Mike’s life we didn’t see each other near as much as I would have liked to. The paths we chose led us somewhat apart but that being said I have no doubt if I called him, he would come instantly as I would for him. It makes me very sad that I can no longer make that call. When Mike or as I always called him Bullet died so did a piece of me. Ride In Paradise Brother, you are loved and missed.


    I’m so incredibly sorry for your loss. You and the family are in my thoughts and prayers.
