I considered Mike a friend, we cycled together many times. It was only after many rides that I leaned of Mike’s Kidney problems. He rode for years with only one working Kidney. I was always inspired by Michael. His positive attitude despite his medical problems was something to behold. He will be greatly missed.

Mike was one of the most upbeat people I ever knew. Even when he was not feeling well, he would make it a point to show up for the club bulletin mailing party.

He will be missed.
