My heartfelt condolences to the family. Mike was my appliance repairman for years. I was crushed when he retired as he was as honest as the day was long along with being the best repairman ever! He always showed up with a smile on his face. I can’t tell you how often I have thought of him since his retirement, especially when dealing with a repairman. They don’t make them like him anymore. He was a true gem in every way.

Besides being a really nice person, Mike was the best and most honest repairman ever. I have said his name aloud many times since he retired. I am sorry for the loss of this good man of skill and integrity.

Liz, Tony, and family. I was shocked to hear of Mike’s passing. I will always remember when he would come to my house for repairs on our appliances. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all.
