I always thought Mike was a cool guy! A kid at heart, he was always doing something fun and playing with new gadgets. He took Chris and I out on his jet skies and boat several times. We always had a blast! Thanks for introducing me to wake boarding, Mike! Even though I was never any good. We’ll miss you!!!!

I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I was there when Mike passed – I sat in the car and held his hand until paramedics arrived. If the family should need anything, please let me know. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I was speaking with a good friend yesterday, a city employee, about the VA aquarium. I have a daughter that volunteers and has well over 500 hours. I brought up Mike and was very surprised to find that Mike had passed.
We had a professional relationship that led to friendship. I could always call on Mike and he was always there for me. When he was no longer with the Aquarium, I did try to reach him and there were some of the co-workers at the aquarium that were not negative about Mike. I would ask about him. No one could say anything about Mike. Nothing bad was said and that was good. I lost touch with Mike. I wish that I had not.
I liked Mike. I was always happy to see him and he always seemed sincerely happy to see me. My wife and kid’s knew him. He was a friend.
I am sorry that I was not able to share with his family at the time of his passing how much I liked him and that he was important to me.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
