We met Mike through my brother Kelly. Mike was kinda shy with us but we did have some BBQ's together. He was a good guy. Sorry for your loss.

So very sad over the loss of your dear Father (and Grandfather) and Friend. A good soul has departed but his memories shall never fade. Always remember the dearly departed is forever etched in the memory of the living. People will always remember your father as the good human being he was as his soul is gone but the memories will never fade. Look beyond the imperfections and remember him for the kind and loving human being he was. He passed knowing how very fortunate he was to have the beautiful children he had and he was very proud of each of you. And oh yes he was also a fantastic guitarist - that is impossible for any of us to forget. Stay strong, keep faith and keep the courage; that is what he would want for you. Always remembered fondly; Aunt Fran (sister-in-law)

I was so shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of Mike. He blessed me with my cherished son Lucas and his influence on me with his music will always be remembered. My thoughts and prayers are with you all in this time.
