Hello to his family, My name being Paul and I was very good friends with MIKE, I was a MEDIC with several other people who knew mike and yes I have to say he was such a super nice guy and friend. I don't know if he died of cancer but I too am fighting cancer ie; CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA, or CLL as it is sometimes called. I am sorry to hear this news but I only just ran across this just today. I served with MIKE in 72 to 75 and always seen him smiling. I send my friendship and best wishes with Gods Blessings to all of you who either knew him or were related family of him. GOD BLESS> RIP. Brother Mike.
