Memories & Candles
I met Mike through other IC friends in 1999 or so. What I remember most about him is that though he was this guy completely devoted to fitness, weightlifting, and sports, he was such a gentle and sensitive soul. He genuinely loved all his friends near and far and talked about them as if they were his own brothers and sisters. He will be missed.

When I think of Mike I always think of the first time I saw him. We lived on the corner of Friendship and Terrace and he and his parents lived 2 houses up the street. The first time I saw them is when he was riding his trike down the street, hair straigt up in the air and his head down. Right behind him was his Mom and Dad. (He never got to far away from them at that time!)

Mike was a great guy and a good friend to so many of us that went to school with him. I'll always remember his fun, unique sense of humor and his smirky smile.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mike and his family.

I met Mike 18 years ago; he was the first person I met moving to the Midwest. He was a great friend over the years and one of the most genuine people I've known. He will be missed dearly.

Mike was my closest friend in junior high. Although we lost touch for decades, I was thrilled when I reconnected on facebook. I remember playing golf with him almost every day one summer, playing with his first Apple computer, feeding his fish when he went on vacation with his family, and just hanging out. I remember once, in junior high, we tried to play hooky from school. On our way to school, we went back to his house and prepared

I do not have the words to express the sorrow and sense of loss that I feel. Mike was my best friend for 30 years. We shared so many experiences and good times, choosing just one seems impossible to do justice to his memory. From grade school, junior high, high school, college and beyond; whether it be shooting hoops in his driveway, going to City High football games on Friday night, watching the Hawks on Saturday, playing golf at Pleasant

I met Mike through work. He was always fun to be around & made work seem more enjoyable. I remember on one job inparticular that we worked together on where the foreman & I didn't seem to be getting along. No matter what I did to try & make things right it seemed like I was just getting talked about more & more behind my back & being taken advantage of in the work place. Mike was one of the

Mike and I went to City High's senior prom together. We had been friends for years and were both dateless for that night. He took pity on me and took me to the prom:) He looked so handsome in his black tuxedo and Stuart Foster, Heidi Busche, Mike, and I made a fun group of friends sharing a night of laughs. I am so very sorry for Mike's wife, friends, and family, He was truly a gentleman, a friend, and a good man.
