Mike and I became friends though membership in the same model train club. Ten years back Mike commissioned me to build a train layout in his basement. He was justifiably proud of the layout not because of my efforts but because of what he and Sallie turned it into. Listening to music during a visit I asked he play Handel’s Messiah. He, of course, had four different recordings of the work and gave me one as a gift. I will never hear that piece and not think of Mike.

I was saddened to read of Mike's passing. Over the years I would come to Mike's house to help solve any computer issues he was having at the time. It has been a couple of years since my last service call, but I can recall our last visit (as if it were yesterday) ending with Mike putting on his sound system in the living room. I told him I was on the verge of getting my very first home theater system and he showed me what he had. I will light a candle and keep Mike in thoughts and prayers at Mass this weekend. Sorry for your loss.

Sallie, Mike will be missed. He was so honest, down-to-earth and like-able, a true friend. He will be missed and even though I am not in New England any more I will always think of him fondly.

I was very touched how Mike welcomed me into the family as his step-daughter's partner with a lot of genuine warmth and enthusiasm. I appreciated his open heart and his open mind. My heart goes out to Sallie and his family and wide circle of friends who will miss his kind presence. Sending much love, Nic Redfern

Patriot, scholar, educator, lover of music, expert railway modeller: Mike was all of these, and more. But most of all he was a gentleman in every sense of the word, and it was great privilege for me to have known Mike and enjoyed his friendship. Mike, you were the best of men. RIP.

My sincerest condolences to the family. I knew Mike as an academic colleague in Arctic security and regional cooperation. He was wise and insightful, but also kind and funny. A joy to work with. He will be missed.

We will surely miss Mike. His passing came as a complete surprise; I had been looking to see him at the upcoming Springfield train show and here about his various adventures. Our deepest sympathy to the family.

Dear Sallie and family, Mike's kindness, sense of humor, and service to the community will be greatly missed. At the National Marine Life Center, we especially appreciated his ingenuity in coming up with creative solutions to facilities (and other) challenges, his belief in the mission, and his unwaivering dedication to family. Thinking of you at this difficult time. Kathy & NMLC
