Michael will be missed by so many! At different times when my health was in peril I would think of Mike and remind myself of his spirt and actually hear him laugh.

So sad to hear of Mike's passing. He was one of my high school classmates. My fondest memories of Mike were from the summer after we graduated. We spent almost every night with a group of high school friends just hanging out and having fun. Rest in peace Mike.

My dear friend, Fred. You brought out the best in everyone, especially me. Some of the best days of my life included those spent with the guys at the Roseville Inn. I never would have made it through high school without you You kept me on the right track. I think you would be proud of the result. I've missed you through the years. You are the cream of the crop, the best of the best. Thank you for touching my life in such a special way. Keep spinnin' those records in heaven!

I cannot count how many hours I spent with Mike on the phone and in person talking about life. He was such a great listener, with great advice. He watched the kids and always kept them laughing. He was a great step dad and friend. He was my first life line when I needed an answer for anything(before Google & cell phones). Mr. Trivia. We will all miss you! Go Spartans.

I am sure Mike will be missed. We use to play chess in High School. Sometimes during class. The Challenge was not to get caught. He had a sharp wit and was a good friend.

Mike had one of the best senses of humor of anyone I have ever met. Add that to his way with words and timing and you had one of the most witty and enjoyable people ever. I am proud to say I knew him and proud to have been a classmate of his. God rest his soul and my heartfelt prayers for his family, you were blessed with him and he is gone too soon.
