I and my brother Ralph, grew up with Mike and we also attended Horace Mann Highschool together. During those years I recall him to be an easy going guy and I enjoyed his company. As kids we would play and do things together - I know that he really liked it when my mother was baking, he could never eat too much. We all grew up during the WWII war years when things were tough and most people didn't have too much. We seemed to still have fun and get along as kids do. I remember soon after higshool graduation, Mike left for the army and I never saw him again. I have good memories of Mike and always wished him well. Sorry to hear of his passing.
