My heart is breaking. I worked with Mike at Gatorade. He was an Awesome person and fun to be around. You will be missed.

I worked with Mike at Pepsi Beverages Co around 2010. He was a great person and I shared his interest in cars, guns and other things. He was a great co worker and I feel terrible he has passed. I give my deepest sympathy to his mother and survivors

Michael is the very first friend I remember having. I always loved playing with his cool toys - I probably could’ve been gentler with his Star Wars action figures - and the adventures we would come up with in one or both our houses or out in the neighborhood. I have always adored his parents. I know Linda was one of my Mom’s best friends and was such a great support when my sister and I were little. Knowing my loved ones when at the nursing home were under Linda’s care were safe and tended to even when I was living thousands of miles away has always meant so much to me. My heart aches for the loss Linda has dealt with losing Mike and now Michael. Only God knows why such good people have to endure so much. Much love to you, Linda!
