On the outside, there was the tough guy, 5′ 11, 260 pounds of rock solid muscle. He challenged himself to exceed all expectations, never allowing himself to be deterred in any way. He faced adversity in his life with willpower and determination and became even stronger. He always gave his best and he expected the best. He dreamed of success and made his dreams come true. He was an inspiration to those who knew him well.
On the inside, there was the little boy with a heart of gold. He was devoted to his family and friends and shared a very special relationship with his mom. He loved animals: Simba, the exotic Bengal cat with whom he shared his life, and Marley, the beautiful black lab he had since childhood. He was passionate about guitars. In the words of a friend, he “never saw a LesPaul he didn’t like.” He was as comfortable in an Armani suit as he was in a West Coast Choppers T-shirt and sweats. He wanted to be loved, not for his success, but for the person he was. He could always make us laugh. He loved beautiful women; endlessly searching for the special one with whom he would spend the rest of his life. He adored little kids and dreamed of having a family of his own. Most of all, he loved his friends and family. He touched each of our lives in a special way and we will always miss him.
Mike, you were, and always will be, our hero. We will love you forever my son.
