I graduated from St Marys in 57 and played 3 sports with Mike. I also worked with him briefly at Pollack. What I will recall most is his strong spirit, great athletic ability and his kind heart. We are richer for his life. My condolences to your family.

When I seen this in the paper my first thought was you and I hope you are doing o.k.. It's hard to lose one parent, but now you have lost both.
If you need any thing or just want to talk I'm here for you always.
Your dad was one of a kind and will forever be remembered by all who knew him.
