How sad to lose dear Captain Mike...so kind, so positive, with such a big heart for family and friends alike. I have great memories of time he spent with Brigitte at my parents' home, on our New Years Day parties, or any grand celebration, really! He would join us at dear OLSH for beautiful Christmas mass times. I have memories of wonderful evenings on the boat for various celebrations. When life was to be celebrated, it seemed, Mike was happy to be present and very much included. Knowing how well my children love their granddad, I know that Jasper and Maguire had an amazing relationship with Mike and that he was as much a fan of being a grandpa as he was of being a Dad, as he was of being a husband, as he was of being a skier, as he was of being a nautical captain, as he was of being a friend to all who knew him in any capacity. Well done, Captain Mike. Very well done. I, and many many others, will miss you. Praying for Brigitte, Sarah and her family, and Ryan, and any extended family, as they grieve the passing of this fine fine man.
To Mike's family, my most sincere sympathy. I remember Mike from our days in grade school at St. Thomas Aquinas. A good man who will be missed by many. Know I will offer Mass for his soul, and for the consolation of the family. Fr. Richard Davis, TOR

Bridgitte and family, I am very sorry to hear of Mike's passing. May the comfort of loving memories always fill your heart with love.
REST IN THE ARMS OF THE LORD MY FRIEND,,,,I WILL MISS YOUR GREAT SMILE...SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE
I am totally in shock over the loss of my dear schoolmate and friend. Brigitte; You already know what a great guy Mike was and will remain for all who knew him. I wish I could be there (recuperating from surgery) in person but I am there in heart, and spirit. My condolences to you, your children, family and friends at this time of sorrow.
