Memories Timeline


    • You were taken from your family and friends too soon, but not before you left a legacy of love, friendship and family.
      I will remember you torturing me in the pool, running from you and Rob in nanaโ€™s basement, lecturing me about taking the right path when I was 16, seeing you dance at a daughters wedding like you were 25 again, and shooting the breeze with you about the warehouses and crazy people. You will be sorely missed…
      RIP cousin. โค๏ธ

  3. My condolences to you all. Mike was a joy to be around with a great sense of humor. It was an honor to care for him over the years. May your memories of him be a blessing to you.

  4. Words cannot even come close to express our sadness over the loss of Mike. I have known Mike since I have memories. I remember Mike and my brother getting drunk in Mike’s mom and dads basement tasting the home made wine! I remember the road trips to Disneyland and tasting all the different food at the Farmers Market. I remember the pillow fight Mike, Phil and Ricky had in their room in Hawaii. Memories of amazing times with an amazing person. Mike was always there the minute my Dad called him. He was there when we lost my brother. He would come by my moms just to visit and say hi. He brought vegetables to us from Villano’s farm. He was part of the Wednesday poker game. So many memories, so many wonderful memories. He was taken far to early. We are all so lucky to have known him. Rest in peace Mike. May you watch over your family from above and help them get through this difficult time.

  5. Bruce and I were so saddened to hear of Mike’s passing. Everyone who knew Mike absolutely thought the world of him. He was a wonderful man and truly loved by all. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. May God be with you.

  7. Mike was a wonderful friend. Mark had great respect and a deep friendship with Mike. Mike was so honest and honorable. He will be missed. Condolences to the family. I’m certain Mark welcomed him with open arms and they must be sharing laughter and stories!
