We were shocked and saddened to recently learn of Mike's passing in May, 2020. We knew him from the Wharf Tavern where he worked as a bartender. A very good bartender!! Great guy!

I am so sorry for this. I had the pleasure of meeting Michael at SMH. Once you met him, you liked him immediately. He was always positive and joking. You could tell he had a huge heart. He will be very missed. I am going to light a candle in his memory and will think of him often.

I met Mike 21 yrs ago when I was working at Lincoln Park. We became friends instantly. My girlfriends and I would go see him every Friday night at the Oaks. Lost touch with him after he left the Oaks. I always thought about him and one year ago he found me on Facebook. I was so happy to hear from him. I spoke with him around two months ago, it was so good to hear his voice. I’m going to miss him, RIP my friend!

Michael, I just found out about this today. My heart is broken and the world seems dark and cruel today. I will always miss they way you are able to make me feel like you were right in it with me from thousands of miles away. I'll miss your good natured chuckle when I teased your accent and your attempts to "sound Canadian." I'll miss texting trash talk whenever the Jay's and the Red Sox played each other and the voice messages you'd leave me when I was struggling. I'll miss your sense of humor and your strength. I love you always.

Dear Mike, my heart is broken for your family, chosen family, and friends. You were loved by all who had the great pleasure of knowing you, and I am honored to count myself among them. So many wonderful memories, but what I will always remember most are your smiling eyes and kind words about everyone. Your positivity and good humor were contagious, and you elevated the mood of any get-together effortlessly. Thank you for being that person to me and countless others. Until we meet again...

We used to call Mike “Woody” at the Oaks, he looked just like him behind the bar. He was one of the best guys to work for, easy going with lots of laughs and he was always generous to the Jr. waiter’s... he’ll be missed by all.

Dear family, Michael was a tremendous person with courage like no other person. I admired his spirit in this battle.
