Your old friend Ricky Fain

Michael has been a long time friend for many years we spent many dinners, cookouts, and Birthday parties for we shared the same Birthday. We were blessed to be part of him and his family and will miss our talks to each other. Our prayers go out to his children and family may he RIP

Fondest memories of Mike is when he would call me to ask me how to make collard greens from buying, cleaning, seasoning and cooking! Will miss my friend. My deepest sympathy to the family.

I knew Michael best when we were 12 & 13. He was fun and well liked by all. He was our 8th grade class president and we had our class barbeque at his house. I remember him playing the drums. He was a part of my best memories of that special time in our young lives. The photo is last year, when I reunited with Ricky Fain, who was one of Michael's best friends. We all hung out together. Ricky moved out of state and asked me about Michael. We reminisced about those days when we all hung out...

I was very saddened to hear of Michael’s passing. I worked with Michael’s father for many years at Ft Monmouth and remember Charlie speaking often of Michael’s interests and achievements. He was very proud of him. I remember Charlie very fondly and owe a lot of how my career developed to his wise advice. We spent a lot of time traveling together and that was always an excellent way to get to know someone. I met Michael at his mother’s funeral and knew him as a fine young man. My deepest...

Michael was a dear friend to both me and my late brother Alfred. I remember working with him to obtain and decorate the building known as the “Block Stop”. He was always involved in community and looking out for its residents. I will miss his posts and responses on Facebook (truth to light and keeping it ). Another soldier laid to rest; may God have mercy on your soul.
Love and prayers for all that mourn...❤

He was a great friend! R.I. P. BROSKI

Michael and I went to High School together. He was ALWAYS sharply dressed and a really nice guy. We frequently shared scripture to lighten both our days. Had our 50th class reunion taken place he would have been a person I was looking forward to seeing and chatting with again. He is in the BEST hands now. May he rest in power knowing we'll see each other again one day. Thank You Jesus. Thank You Father God for allowing me to know Michael and experience his love.

Will never forget you Michael
