I’ve known Mike since his family moved to 56 St in the 1950s. We shared many great times together, especially at O’Hara’s, M&M’s and the Knights of Columbus. Whenever I think of my life in the late 50s and early 60s Murph is always one of the people in my memories. Mike will be missed by many. Rest in Peace my friend.

We remember Mike from 56th St and the times he started building the 25th Hour Club on 5th Avenue over the stores literally with his own hammer. Linda and I feel that we are better off having known him and thank everyone involved in putting these memories together. I think I saw Hughie in one of these pictures and know he would like everyone to know he is thinking of all of you too. Bless all of you and those that came before us.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

As the head of Alex Brown"s equity business I first met Mike when we was the head clerk for our firm on the NYSE in 1984. Shortly thereafter he became a floor broker with his own seat. He was a great broker, beloved and respected by all who worked with him , as well as his fellow NYSE members. Rest in Peace my friend.

I met Mike when I was 10 yrs old in 1952. Mike and I served in the National Guard 1963-1969. He was in my wedding party in 1967. We rented a mansion in the Hampton's called the Black Duck. We had many fishing trips in Montauk with the Famous Frank Mundus, went to many Jet game and many parties at the 25th Hour Club in Brooklyn. We were planing a fishing trip for this summer. Our friendship is over 70 years. Attached is a picture of many friends gathering together for a great party. RIP my friend I will miss you greatly

Mike and I were members of the 25th Hour Club in Brooklyn. Mike was a standup guy and treated people like you would want to be treated. We had a lot of fun at the club and at Jacks on Third Avenue and Bay Ridge Parkway in Brooklyn. I wish I saw more of him than I did. Living in Hampton Bays kind of isolates you from a lot of our old friends. Mike was always fun to be with and we went to a few Giants games together and we were always happy to see him when he visited the Hampton’s and at weddings and reunions. RIP

Mike was one of the first people I met in this extended family. It was at Kristen’s First Communion. He immediately made me feel at home and part of the family. His kind words and hugs I cherished each summer when we would get together. Caity and Kristen were imbedded into my heart when they lost their incredible mom. The love I have for all of them is immense. I will forever be thankful to have had Mike and Kathy in my life. Their daughters are amazing and will continue the kind loving life started by their parents. Mike, I will never forget the brown lunch bag! You have left quite a legacy and you will be missed.
