Elmira: Age 39, passed away on Valentine's Day, February 14,2021, due to leukemia. He has been battling this terrible disease for the last 3 years. He fought hard for his family and children.

Mike was loved by so many. He was an avid 49ers football, NY Knicks and Yankees fan. He loved working on his car with his friend Bo, building his car stereo so loud people knew it was him coming when he was blocks away. Mike was the type of person who would give you the shirt off his back and never ask for anything in return. He was a proud man and he loved his children… the most important people in his life. Family and friends are invited to New Beginnings Church, 300 E. Miller Street, Elmira, on Tuesday, February 23, 2021 from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m.
