Mikey was an amazing person inside and out, his Godson said it best when he said, “Mikey was the centerpiece of our family.” Mikey was a remarkable soul who brought joy and warmth to everyone fortunate enough to know him. He loved his family, Snickers his dog, and birthdays more than anything and always made sure you opened his card and presents last because his were the best, he would bring out his piano to play “Happy Birthday.” Some of Mikey’s best memories were spent on the golf course with his dad, brother, cousins, friends, and nephews, he traveled all over the United States playing golf and going on the guys' golf trips. Throughout Mikey's life, he attended Jo Brighton, participated in Special Olympics, played basketball, bowled on many leagues, and loved to swim, he would occasionally take a nightly swim when they were at their Florida house.
Mikey was an avid MSU fan who watched the football and basketball games sometimes by himself or with family while enjoying pizza. However, if MSU lost it was never their fault it was always the referees' fault or the other team was cheating. There was no arguing about his favorite team and his love for them. Mikey also enjoyed watching WWE and Smackdown on Friday and Monday nights from the comfort of his TV room while mumbling under his breath about how someone was cheating if his favorite wrestler did not win. When he was not watching wrestling he was watching his favorite golfer Phil Mickelson or an intense game of Family Feud while coloring in his coloring books with his highlighters or completing his word searches enjoying his Mountain Dew or nightly treat of Orange Sherbert and vanilla ice cream (man was he mad when Kroger discontinued that). Mikey was an amazing human being who taught others how to be kind, loving, and patient, Mikey's spirit lives on, a beacon of love and passion that will forever illuminate our lives.
