Karen & Children - Grand-Children & Nancy.
Saddened when I read the paper upon my return from my 1st "bucket list trip across the USA" - before I left my youngest son & I had a cute conversation about Mike's Aunt Hazel & that she will be out Haunting us on the 5th of July -- D.O.her Death. -- as Archie does once in awhile.. now to return & read of Michael's passing... He once told me when we were buying on Eliot that one of his true wishes is to make it longer than his Father did for him for his Children -- Glad he did & to see Grand Children too. Though still a very young age to pass, Karen may you find a path in your journey to guide you and keep your strength. Family hold together & be there for Mom. Nancy please take good care. Mike was very nice to work with - tough - but had very good communication skills. Thank you Michael for all you taught me - & all you did in your life - as you proved at work - your family always came 1st - I liked that about you - not many men can show that during a work period. Watch over them now as you did here on earth. Peace within the McArthur Family Always.

Mike livened up every gathering--- our class reunion next summer just won't be the same without him. My goodness, it seems like yesterday that Mike and a crowd of us young "rogues" from the Harborcreek class of '69 drove out to Stateline Tavern the afternoon following our graduation ceremony rehearsal and played pool and drank bottles of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. A lot of people may not realize that Mike was quite an athlete, although I don't think he was on many of the official Harb teams. However, he was the senior high school badminton champion of the tournament that Mr. Paloto organized through the gym classes. I remember because I actually defeated him for the championship of our particular class (my greatest moment ever in competitive sport), but Mike as runnerup went on to the schoolwide tournament to defeat everyone else (I lost to Ron Grega in the first round of tournament play). Mike was a singer in high school, too; I remember him sitting in Mrs. Alexander's 9th grade chorus. It took guts to be in chorus because it was mostly girls--- oh, come to think of it, Mike would have been right in his element, because he was always well-liked by the girls. Finally, Mike was my boss in the first job I ever had at Paul's IGA; I was a complete klutz, but Mike was patient and kind enough to keep me on rather than telling Paul to fire me. The last time I saw Mike he was with his wife Karen at the 2011 New Year's Eve party down at the Bayfront; he assured me he would make the next class reunion. Mike, you will be there in everyone's heart and fond remembrance. Thanks so much for being the unique personality that you were; you enriched the life memories of everyone who knew you.

A great man has left us - when he stopped for a LONG visit on May 9, he was so positive , we had hoped for the best. Knowing Mike since he was in 9th grade, we knew what kind of person he would become. God's grace and blessings to the entire McArthur family; he leaves all of you a wonderful legacy!
