All I can say about Mike is when you lose a life long friend like he was to me it took the wind out of my sails. Mike and I as well as just a couple of others go back to kindergarten together. We had so many good times while in school. We stayed really close friends even while he was in the Marine Corp, and myself in the Navy. While I was stationed at Miramar Naval Air Station and Mike at Camp Pendleton in San Diego, Mike would take the bus to where we lived, spend the weekend and Sharon and I would drive him back to base on Sunday evening. We kept in touch up until his passing. It just gives me a heavy heart knowing on Nov 27 I can't call him and wish him a Happy Birthday anymore. He will never be forgotten. Semper Fi my friend.

Mike was a long time friend. I'm very sorry to hear of his passing. My condolences to his family.

We go back to kindergarten and grade school at Weiskopf school then Washington and Bradford. I remember when Mike joined the Marines. He was leaving Viet Nam about the same time I was getting there.

Semper Fi my friend.

I also first met Mike in kindergarten class at Weiskopf School.  He was a good friend to me, a good friend to our Southern Wisconsin All Airborne Chapter and a good friend to Wounded Warrior causes.  He was one of a kind and will be sorely missed.  My condolences to the family.

Sorry to hear of Mike's passing. I've known Mike since kindergarten also at Wieskoff school. He told me how relaxing it was to be self employed after all those years with the gas company. RIP my friend.
