So sorry to hear we have lost another classmate.  We both grew up on the West Side.  He and my brothers were very active in the Western Community Center.  I remember his wrestling activies in high school.  He will be missed.  My condolences to his family and loved ones.  Hope he is enjoying a reunion with his wife and loved ones who passed before him.  Peace be with you, Mike and also to those left behind grieving for him.
