Mike's love for life was contagious. He had a passion for fishing. His love for sports was evident in his unwavering support for his favorite football team, the Giants, and his enthusiasm for cheering on the Celtics during basketball games. Mike's adventurous spirit led him to dance; he found joy in moving to the rhythms of Michael Jackson's iconic "Thriller." He also had a soft spot for animals and found comfort in the company of his beloved dog Nala, as well as his cuddling buddies Larry and Peanut, who happened to be cats. These simple pleasures brought him immense happiness throughout his life.
A family gathering will be held on Thursday, September 21, 2023 at Harrisburg Funeral & Cremation to celebrate Mike's life. The ceremony will include military honors as a tribute to his service to our country.
