    Heaven gained a remarkable and humble man and one outstanding barber. I will and have always missed our barber shop chats especially those about the Navy. Please allow Denise and I join the chorus and pass our deepest condolences on your loss of a beloved husband, father, friend and one of the very best and great American I have ever had the privilege and honor to know.

    I just saw the news of Mike’s passing in yesterday’s Kansas City Star, or I would have offered my condolences sooner. Mike was my barber for over 15 years, and it was the only time I ever looked forward to getting my hair cut. He loved talking about his kids, his grandkids, and growing up in “Northeast,” not to mention MU football. What a great storyteller and a very fine man. I am very sorry for your loss.

    So sorry for your loss. I plan to come tomorrow if I can get the snow and ice off my car. So far no go. Blessing Mary

    Susan our thoughts and prayers are with you tomorrow. I am so sorry we will not be able to attend the service. We are booked solid with appointments tomorrow at my shop and I will not be able to get away. But we are thinking of you!

    When I look at his picture, still hard to believe he is gone. We enjoyed Mike telling his raunchy jokes and funny stories of his early life and then with Susan. They are both loved much.
