Michael was always interested in the children program in BSF. He was a good friend and willing to volunteer all the time to help us out. He will be missed by the children and the children leaders until we meet again in heaven. Jim Newsome

Mike was married to my cousin, Marg, who was like my sister. "Cuz" was one of the funniest and most thoughtful men I knew. He was a wonderful husband and father and family man, always ready with a laugh and a good joke. Mulf and I will miss you always, as we do Marg. With respect and love, Jackie and Mulf

I especially remember the several Veteran's Day visits we shared with our grandchildren at their school. Mike was rightfully proud of his Naval service to the country and we had many discussions about his time in the submarine. Happy events!
