Mike was a great guy that smiled and joked around to brighten your day, kind & helpful to everyone he met. He always had the tunes going at work and his sketch’s of hilarious artwork showed his great personality. My sincere condolences to his wife and family.
So sorry my friend.

Tanya and family, my deepest sympathies for all of you. Mike was a great guy. Always smiling and friendly. Hugs!
My sympathy to all of Mike’s family. So sorry that this happened. He was a really fun person that I took pleasure in being around. I will think of him often when listening to all that music he (like me) so loved and whenever I have an IPA. May the Lord be with you at this time of sorrow. One last ” THANK YOU for your service, Mike…..may you rest in Peace
So sorry for your loss. I have such fond memories of growing up visiting St Marys
And seeing all of our cousins. Mike was such a great guy and I’ve enjoyed chatting with him on Facebook about music. May you find peace in this impossible time.
Tanya, it was a great pleasure to work with Mike. Even on a bad day, Mike had a smile on his face and could make anyone smile with him. His love for family and life will never be forgotten! Rest in peace Mike, your work here on earth is complete.
To Tanya and Mike’s entire family, the SMAHS Class of 1979 sends our thoughts, prayers and condolences. We will miss Mike. He was so full of life and was always smiling. Take care and remember the good memories.
I considered Mike one of my closest friends, whom I respected, and enjoyed many conversations in recent years despite the distance. We always had much in common, and forged a friendship as early as freshmen in High School. Whenever I returned to visit St. Marys he was the first to make a point that we visit. He lived life doing the things he enjoyed, left us far too early. Condolences to his family. I will truly miss our friendship.
Tanya, my heart breaks for you on your loss of Mike. What a great man he was. Always will remember him by the way he always made people laugh. He had a great love for life and enjoyed it to the fullest. He will be missed by many. Thoughts and prayers for you and all of Mike’s family. God bless!♥️
My deepest sorrow for you Tanya, and family. Mike was a great person and I enjoyed every moment that we worked together. I loved hearing him laugh, and his funny drawings were the best. My heart is sad for your great loss.
