Michael and I met when he had just graduated Edison HS. We had so much fun, we were so young. I missed him when we parted and followed his career, I even saw an CSO concert once whilst on a business trip to the Queen City. I still miss him. I wish I had known of his passing sooner. Rest in Peace Michael.

I was sorry to see this. Mike showed me what was possible with the tuba. I played next to Mike in the 1969 All-Virginia High School Band. He was a formidable talent and an inspiring advocate for music. He will be missed.

As a former student at MU, Michael made me accountable for my actions. He wanted no less than to make me a better person, not just a better musician. He did on both accounts. Although my time with Mike was short it is invaluable compared to not being influenced by this great teacher. Thank you Michael.

Mike was and is a good friend, teacher and performer. All our lives are better for his presents in them. He shurely now walks in the perpetual light of the Lord's comfort and his music will endure with his students and his many wonderful performances.

I began studying with Mike after the passing of Dr. Fred J. Marzan, my first mentor. We shared many musical moments, and great times as friends. My brother, you will never be forgotten. Once, always, Long Live! Music Hall in Cincinnati will always be "Mike's house." I am so honored to have walked on the shoulder of the tuba worlds greatest giant.
