    I am very sorry to hear of Mike's passing and wish his family well. I remember being friends with Mike in grade school and him coming over my house and getting into trouble because no one knew where he was. He was a nice person and very caring. He was easy going and open to everybody he met.

    To all of Mike's family, We are just truly heartbroken to hear this news. Mike was an all-around great person.. He was funny, kind and generous. When ever we ran into Mike and he asked how everything and everybody was, it wasn't just a random polite question, he truly cared about your answer. His heart was so big for his family and he will forever live in yours. ❤️ Steve and Carla Dunn

    Mike my friend you will surely be missed. Will miss our conversations and your stories of Teese, The Moose and the Hulk. You were an avid animal lover and always a kind person. You have become one of God's Angels and now at peace with Reese. Fly high with Reese my friend, will miss our chats. My sincere condolences to your Brother Marcus and your family.

    Michal, your kindness and compassionate nature has affected us all and will help us all to be better. Thank you for always being there to help me, with your big smile and consoling words when things were tough, "It's all good!". My only consolation is that we will all be together some day---I love you and will see you again some day,

    We will always remember Mike as a wonderful friend and neighbor for almost fifty years who's kindness was shown in numerous ways, whether a warm hello or a helping hand through numerous snowstorms and fall leaf pick ups or his special gift of love for animals and not just his own but his neighbors as well. Mike will remain in our hearts as a cherished friend and neighbor! The OBrien Family
