Mike was my client for almost 15 years, and most importantly in that time, was my friend. What I will miss most about him is his stories of his travels, the people he came across, his advice, and the many many laughs we had over anything and everything. The whole salon was devastated to hear the news, as he will be greatly missed by all of us.
The world lost a very kind and brilliant soul with a wicked

Mike was always friendly. I will miss him.
Mike was our across-the-stret neighbor when we lived on Riverview Ave. in Rocky River. We shared an interest in cats. When we were feeding a stray cat one summer while i was taking a two week seminar, Mike agreed to put out a dish of dry food by our side door each day in hopes that kitty would eventually stay. He did---for over ten years. If the doctors looked closely at Mike's

I use him as an example of what true union membership is about. My condolences to his family.

I was Mike's Social Studies Department Chairperson and I remember Mike as a devoted teacher who was always concerned about the welfare of his students. Mike was devoted to his profession and to acquiring knowledge. His wide range of interests and knowledge were widely respected. Being certified to teach social studies, Spanish and also counseling indicate his intelligence and willingness to continue to learn. Needless to say, Mike was always successful in his career.
I send my deepest sympathy to Mike's family.

My memories of Mike are of his days at Euclid High School. Mike was conscientious in each of his professional pursuits: teacher, counselor and ETA member and officer.
During those days in the Euclid City Schools, Mike played an important part in what they were and what they might have become.
All the best to family and friends as each deals with their own sense of loss.

Mike was a dear friend to me what made Mike even more special to me was the way he treated my son Keith. Mike treated Keith like a grandson he never had.When a friend treats your offspring in a way Mike did you have a special place in your heart for them as i did for Mike. Mike will be greatly missed by Keith and myself
