    We will miss you dad, I’ll always remember the good times….playing 500 at the top of the hill, throwing the frisbee, horseshoes, and watching numerous sporting events or playing a game of cards (always with a cold beer)! I’ll remember your Green Chili (the best), the way you loved Italian dressing on your salads and your excitement for chocolate chip ice cream at night! I’ll remember how you liked your morning coffee with your cigarette, sitting at the kitchen table; sometimes going over a bid for a side job. I’ll remember how you loved music and the way you would dance and sing if the mood caught you right, lol! I’ll remember how you would talk about a favorite movie, TV show or documentary that you thought we needed to watch. I’ll remember your love for collecting Zippos, t-shirts and hats, and our adventurous trips to the casino (some ending abruptly). But, most of all…I’ll always remember how hard you loved your kids and grandkids. I love you dad and I’ll always remember you!

    I worked with Mike for over twenty five years and have known him longer than that. Mike was truly one of the best at his trade. He made people want to be as good of a Cement Mason as he was. He made being one of the best look easy. You could always count on Mike. Anyone that has ever finished concrete knows that the days can be very long, very long! But Mike was there every day for the longest day. He was always the first to jump in next to you if you were struggling with anything. I know some would say concrete is just rock, sand , Portland, and water, but it reacts differently every day. Mike knew how to read concrete from the beginning to the end and reacted accordingly. Never lost a floor with him. All of us that worked with Mike for so many years, loved seeing him on the job. Mike and so many others I worked with was a legend and many of us are better people for knowing him.
    A life well done my good friend. Till we meet again.
