Grew up with Michael all through high school. He was a good friend and always fun to hangout with. We both lived on Union Highway for many years. Sorry for your loss.

Michael and I were homeroom classmates for 3 years at SHS... he was very smart and never at a loss for words. As a fellow Veteran, I salute his service. Robert French
