What a wonderful man Mike was. A true gentleman. I met him when I worked at sharon steel. He was so proud of his family, I know he will be missed. It was always nice to see his beautiful smile. I seen him not to long ago and he was telling me what a blessed man he was . Gushing over his grandchildren. I shall keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

I met Mike when I worked at Sharon Steel. We chatted when ever he'd come thru the 60 inch. Saw him at the VFW and he has always been the sweetest, politest man. I was shocked when I heard he had passed. His brightness will be greatly missed.
