My wife and I as a young married couple bought our first home on Aeolus from Mike and Barbara back in the mid 70’s. Both he and Barbara and Mike were so kind and professional and helped Doreen and I get started in our first real new home. Mike’s patience and helpfulness was and is an inspiration for our family to this day. We stayed in touch and enjoyed every time we would run into them in North County. Every time Doreen and I see a biplane in the sky to this day we think of Mike with fond memories of what a gentleman and nice man he was.

When Mike walked in the doors of ENCINITAS Cafe his presence was immediately felt. His big voice would boom: "I want coffee & I want it now..Hot like Mother used to make." Some customers, not knowing him, would look at us... We just pointed Mike to a table and smiled. Miss you! CAFE "Girls"

With sadness,today I have read about Mike's passing. He built our first home and some of my best memories were made in that home. My children were born and raised in that beautiful Leucadia neighborhood on Shore View Lane. After the house was built, a year later, I called Mike, who lived two doors up in his own spectacular home, to tell him that the lightbulb in the dining room hanging lamp had burned out. I was obviously a newby house owner. He came right down, with a new lightbulb and encouraged me to begin buying my own lightbulbs. I loved his smile, I loved his laugh. To Barbara, Maddie and Paige, may your memories hold you up. May the Grace of God sustain you.
