I was in the boy scouts with Mike. I am saddened to hear of his passing. I remember the fun and mischief we would get in to while at summer camp. My condolences go out to all his friends and family. He will be greatly missed.

Mike was a big, goofy, love of a guy. He would do anything for you, if he could. He made me laugh. He said it like he saw it. He cared so much about his family. We are all saddened by the loss of our friend.
