Mike was always such a kind man. I remember always seeing him at the VFW Post in Farmersville. The last couple times I saw him were at my grandfather's funeral nearly 11 years ago. He spoke about my grandfather for several minutes. Then the last, was at a Veteran's day program for my high school choir class my sophomore year. It's so sad to hear of his passing.

Mike and I were shipmates on 2 ships homeported in Yokosuka. I played many games of acey deucey and many hands of cribbage with him. He was a good shipmate and a good sailor, the navy could sure use a bunch of sailors like Mike today. Rest easy my friend.

Saddened to hear of Mike’s passing. Saw him last at the VFW in Berea with Ted Grospitch. Fieg as we used to call him. Great guy. He will be missed.

Mike was an outstanding Navy man! However his greatest strength was that of simply being a “shipmate”. I’ll always cherish our visit together just prior to his illness. Fair winds and following seas, my friend.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Shipmate... I wish for you fair winds and following seas, deep green water under your bow, your main rifles trained in the posture of peace and a gentle breeze at your stern.

Mike was a very old Shipmate and dear friend. We sailed together on ships out of Yokosuka Japan for many years. No doubt Mike will be waiting on Fiddlers Green cold beer in one hand, rocks glass of Bourbon in the other while a Camel cigarette burns up in an ashtray. Love you my Brother, until we meet again....
