A lot of people know that my brother had a passion for performing. What most people don’t know is he was a performer at a very young age. He made up skits and acts to entertain my sister and I when we were very little. Memories we will never forget. We always had a show at bedtime and always went to sleep giggling and smiling. Mike didn’t like me talking about his entertaining us. I’ll never know why, but of all the performances he did, his best were in the hallway of Winton California. I will miss my big brother who taught me so much. Who introduced me to some of the best friends in the world and who married an angel that is in my life. Rest in Peace my brother. Give Daddy and Mitch a big hug and most of all, tell Tom how much I miss and love him. Forever in my heart. Pam

The first time I met Mike was when he auditioned for the role of Nicely Nicely in Guys & Dolls. I was playing piano for the auditions. Mike took the stage and belted out his song, blowing everyone away, and winning the role! He was a good friend during those theater guild days and it was exciting to see him continue to cultivate his love for performing in the years that followed. Sending all my love and deepest sympathy to Lynda and Missy.
