  4. Deepest sympathy for your loss. Mike was a great guy who I will always remember as a kind gentleman. He was my son’s Cameron 2nd year coach in tball. This was after taking the older boys to a state title. What dedication to the youth of the area. He will surely be missed by all, especially the youth at the park. You should all be proud of his dedication, it is rare these days. Sincerely, Pete McMackin
