I’m deeply saddened to hear the news of Mikey’s passing. My condolences to the entire McNamara family. Some of the most fun times of my life are when we would all get together and play football/baseball anytime anywhere. Mikey always had a giant smile on his face whenever I saw him. He will be overwhelmingly missed. I love you all. If there is anything I can do please reach out.

The Littlefield family shares a sadden heart. I had to honor to know Mikey through the F.I. Recreation Dept. I was one of the coaches that were blessed to share many practices and games with Mikey and his teammates. His energy, passion, and dedication was apparent at an early age. Our family is grieving with yours.

Im so sorry for the lost of sweet Mikey .. I remember when we were all kids running around fox trace all the kids .. we all use to play man hunt and I remember me and Mikey being on a team together and he said Jordan we have to find somewhere really good and the other team couldn’t find us for a long time haha we went by the pool and we got in trouble cause it was dark outside and it was like 10 o’clock at night. Mikey was truly one of my good friends when we were young .. one of the first friends I made when I moved to South Carolina. Me and Mikey ran into each other a few months ago downtown Greenville and we talked a few then he gave me a hug than we went about our ways .. Mikey you’ll be missed ❤️ A sweet soul gone to soon.

So heartbroken to hear about Mikey’s passing . He was a great kid with a huge personality and so full of life. I had the pleasure of meeting Mikey and his dad John while working at the YMCA about 9-10 yrs ago. Mikey would yell K-E-L-L-Y every time he saw me at the YMCA . My deepest sympathies go out to his family. RIP sweet guy.
