    Mike was a great guy, loved people and would do anything for a fellow veteran. For many years you would see him at Veterans Day, Memorial Day celebrations, anywhere veterans were gathered. He will be missed greatly.

    I am sure I was a classmate of Mikes at one time while at Xavier High School.

    I was also a Vietnam combat veteran … as was Mike.

    Rest in peace Mike … and welcome home form Vietnam.

    Mike was instrumental in launching my bartending career at the renowned BUDDs in the HEIGHTS. Always a positive guy. Never a bad word spread about anyone. Heaven merits another angel. He will be remembered as a gent. God bless him .

    Everlasting Mike. Your work in establishing the Pinellas County Veterans Council, allowing our Royal Canadian Legion Post 144 to be a Charter Member, leading to so much being done on behalf of Veterans old and new, will be remembered for as long as we live. Motivating local politicians to be involved with Veterans, attending every ceremony you could fit into your busy schedule, taking time to have a Guinness with a veteran friend, you were always an advocate. Your efforts made it easier for others to help. We are proud to have known, and be influenced by you. May you enjoy your eternity with your beloved Susan. Everlasting Mike. Dann Oliver, Commander, on behalf or your fellow members of RCL Post 144 Pinellas County, FL.

    Mike and I go way back to Jackson Heights, NY where we became friends and “regulars” at Budds, also in Jackson Heights. I also knew his wife, Susan, who was a very special person. Although we have not been together for sometime since his move to Florida, we always kept in touch via email and Facebook. As a fellow Vietnam Veteran, we shared many stories and experiences whenever we were together. He was an avid Veteran advocate, especially for Vietnam Veterans. I will remember things we shared, especially at Budds and Griffins upstate. His passing brings sadness and I will remember him always. May the Lord bring him peace.
