I only knew Mike as my neighbor in the "tent next door" at the Madison Bouckville Antique Show. Every year, I looked forward to seeing the faces and light conversations with my fellow dealers. I am very sorry for your loss, and I am sorry Mike will no longer be in the tent next door.

Be At Peace

Mike was a great guy with a huge heart. Always giving and helping others. I have many great memories of going too many shows with him in the early 80s and learning all about sports memorabilia. Good times and great memories. My dear friend I will miss you. Until we meet again. Eric

I will miss my best friend , and brother for the rest of my life, we grew up together and remained friends for almost 50 yrs. he was always there when I needed him, or vice a versa, he will always live on in my memory. I wish more people knew him the way he really was , and not what he portrayed at times.

I have many fond memories of doing shows with Mike, going antiquing, doing bottle shows and going on bottle digs. After getting out of school we would go over to his family's house and crank up Boston, Elvis Costello, and Bruce Springsteen. Mike loved to listen to Bruce in those days! Great teen years growing up and a lot of fun stuff. Sorry to hear of this news. My
Prayers go out to his family- peace Mike, thanks for the memories!

I met Mike back in the 80s when I moved to town and got asked to play on a basketball team with Mike, his brother Dave, Doug Dopp, and Dave Holden. We had great times and there were a lot of moments I won't forget. I lost track of Mike over the years but still hold onto those memories as they represent a great time in all of our lives. Mike I hope you don't argue the calls in heaven like you did on the basketball court my friend. God will certainly T you up! RIP.

I will miss coming up from Binghamton and seeing Mike at the breweriana shows. I never had an unpleasant conversation with him regarding a purchase or any topic at all. I will miss talking with him him, looking at all his stuff, and offer my sincerest condolences to his family.
