We are so sad to hear of Mike's passing. He was a much loved member of "The Gang" of Lenwood Blvd. for many years after their retirement to Charleston. We were lucky enough to be their next door neighbors. Our love to all the family!

Mike was a large part of our family’s Christmas traditions. He brought many years of joy to our family at Christmastime as Santa Claus. For 12 years, our children received a surprise visit from “Santa” before Christmas. Mark started this tradition in 1995 when our oldest son, Anthony, was receiving hospice care. Mike took over the role as Santa when Zach and Mia were toddlers and continued to carry the Santa baton until 2007 when Anthony received his angel wings. Every year during a Christmas gathering with Mark, Leiko, and their children, Santa Mike made a grand surprise visit bringing Christmas joy and a gift for each member of our family. Our kids would be in awe of Santa standing in our living room entertaining them with his magical Santa hat. I will be forever grateful for all the joy and generosity Santa Mike gave to our family especially our beloved Anthony.
