I am so sorry for Mikes passing. He was a great friend and just plain nice guy. Won't say goodbye as we will meet again some day. You can fly even higher now. Never forget you and miss you already. Love SB

To say that Mike was unique is certainly true but it is also a bit of an under statement! I have known Mike for more than twenty-five (25) years. I met him at the Enon Eagles when I became a member. We had many conversations and I was impressed with Mike's long term memory. As the president of Enon Eagles for more than twenty (20) years, I had direct contact with him when he was an officer and as a friend. The people he new and the experiences he had in life were ever present and he loved talking about them, particularly if the person and/or event related to something which currently happened. Mike was pretty serious at times but that characteristic was balanced with a desire for humor. Simply put, he liked to laugh but loved making others laugh! Mike served the Enon Eagles, Aerie #4069 as a trustee for several terms and he held other officer positions at various times. As a past president, Mike was the individual who conducted the installation of officers for our fraternal organization for many, many years. Mike was most kind to everyone he liked. I recall one (1) time when I needed money and I started to go towards the ATM at the club. Mike promptly called me back, handed me a twenty (20) dollar bill and said "Your credit is good with me; save yourself the fees." One of the talents Mike had was his ability to make posters and sheets of paper on which he had superimposed the face of one of our members on another persons body or an inanimate object. Sometimes he would add a comment but his intent was solely to promote laughter by those who viewed it. Mike knew how to tease without hurting feelings or harming his relationship with the subject of his joke. I will miss Mike and his desirabe antics. Mike served the Enon Eagles well and the friendships he established will live on through our fond memories. Rest In Peace, Mike and know that you lived a good life and that you will be both remembered and missed by all who really knew you!

I am so sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. We go clear back as little children when your grandparents lived on Tecumseh Road and had a monkey in a cage! Your grandmother was in my mother’s sorority and your dad and I would play with that mean old monkey while our mom’s chatted. Such great memories from a time gone by. I even remember your great grandmother who lived in the home place on New Carlisle Pike. Please give my love and sympathy to your Aunt Joyce who got me interested in horses. You boys were always so good in school-my love and prayers to you both🙏🏻

I'm so sorry for your loss.

Don't worry Mike, We'll take it from here. God bless you.l
