I was very surprised to hear of Mikes passing. I knew Mike from DVR. I will always hold his memory dear. I will miss his sense of human and compassion that he showed on his Facebook posts. My condolences to the family.

From: Bill Penyak
I am so sorry to hear about Mike. I haven't seen Mike recently but know he has had health and pain issues over the years. Thank God he had you for support all these years. I am in Alaska until Labor Day and feel bad I am not there to attend but I have spoken to other members of the class of 1965 that will be coming. My best to you and your family.
