WNYNewsNow provides our deepest sympathy to his co-workers, friends and family in this time of grieving.


  1. Deepest sympathy to all and especially his family in this time of loss. It’s a blessing that he’s gone home yet that doesn’t make his passing any easier on his loved ones. Love, peace, comfort, and prayers being sent.

  2. Deepest sympathies, to the family, nineteen years ago I lost my husband with leukemia. I know how hard is this.
    Be strong!!!

  3. Mike was a good man. I remember years ago as teenagers we worked at the Lakewood Rod & Gun together. It was my 1st job, I was young, intimidated, and didn’t know what to expect. Mike was a busser and went out of his way to show me the ropes of the real world. He was always fair and honest. We all used to sit around and eat after work, talking about stuff & just being guys. We had quite the cast working there back then. We used to play the radio game, naming songs & bands for points for bragging rights. I’ll never forget those days. They were great times. God bless Mike.

  4. Having Mike in my math class was such a joy because of his smile and the great attitude he brought to the room. My deepest sympathy to his wife, children, family, and friends. May God bless with wonderful memories.
