We are so saddened to learn of Mike’s passing. He was a beloved addition to the St. George community and we were fortunate to know him. He was humble, kind, and always willing to help. He was the calm during the whirlwind preparations and going’s on of the Greek Festival.  We knew he was talented, but we didn’t know the extent of his accomplishments.  Mike was a rarity in this world... we need more Mikes in this world!  God must have a special place for him. May his memory be eternal.

Deepest sympathy to the family for your loss …Mike was such a beloved member of the St George Greek Orthodox Cathedral family.  Such a talented man.  Always helpful, smiling and kind.  May his memory be eternal.

My family lived in Greenville from 2000 to 2016 and, as members of St. George Church, were blessed to know Mike through Billy Harakas. I'm not sure I have ever met a more pure soul. One of the last times I saw him was a few ago when there was some iconography work being done at St. George.  He took me up on the expansive scaffolding to the very top of the cathedral dome, the face of Jesus.  I recall Mike's words, "it is very special up there".  He was so right.  Thanks to all of you for the gift of Mike to our church.  God bless you all and may his memory be eternal.

We send our sympathy to Diane and her family in the loss of a wonderful husband.
Mike was truly loved by so many, especially friends from St. George Greek Orthodox Cathedral. Mike was soft spoken, a kind heart and a most thoughtful and dependable individual. When Pete had problems with his computer, he never hesitated to come to our home to help solve the problem. He will be missed by so many. May his memory be eternal. .
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Granger family, I knew Mike from St George and from the Carolina Drive In. He was the nicest, smartest and most caring person I've ever known.It knocked me to my knees when I heard the sad news. Some people just become very special to others. He was so special to me. He will be missed, but never forgotten. God bless your family.

My deepest condolances to you all on the loss of such a wonderful and kind man, Mike was the nicest man, he was always willing to lend a hand to anyone needing help.  The past twenty years Mike played a major role in the parish of Saint George, always there to lend a hand, give a compliment, and always with a smile no matter how tired he was, I was very firtunate to have known and worked with Mike at St. George, I considered him a great friend.  May his memory be eternal.  My husband Stev and son Chris are sending you our love and prayers for strength and comfort.

Michael and I are cousins. When our Grandfather died Michael said to me, “Mom keeps saying we lost Grandpa. But no we didn’t. We know where he is. His soul has just joined a larger universe now.” I am comforted to know that Michael hasn’t left us completely, he has just joined that larger universe. He will be as close as our memories of him. We can still feel his love. Rest In Peace dear friend .
