My condolences to the family,
Working next door to the sub shop in the 70s and early 80s in Everett I remember more then one conversation and shared lunch at the counter with him.
When I think of Mike, what I remember is his smile.
Rest in peace ,

Rest In Peace dear cousin Mike. I'm so glad we had the experience of working together with jewelry in the late 80's. I loved all of the fun stories you shared with me. I truly have wonderful memories.
