My condolences to the family. I had not seen Mike since high school, where he was in the class above me. We were newcomers in Osmond and I just remember him being nice to me as we went thru the halls or during track. May God comfort you with the knowledge that Mike is remembered fondly by the underclassmates.

I've lost track of Mike over the last several years. But I'll always remember his sense of humor, his high stepping running style on the football field and over the hurdles, his passion for life and his "contagiousness".... more

I've lost track of Mike over the last several years. But I'll always remember his sense of humor, his high stepping running style on the football field and over the hurdles, his passion for life and his "contagiousness". Who else could have the entire student body screaming "FUDILEEKIAH" at a pep rally ... who even knows what that meant (maybe Bill Zechman). I've always considered him my friend ... one of my best. I'll miss him and I too believe he "shoulda gone fishing".
