I miss the way I used to sucker you into putting on stereo headphones, and insulting you in front of everybody while you listened.

A monster (in the kindest sense) of a man.

A sweet man who was misunderstood by us all.

Would love to tell him how fondly he is rembered.

I got to know Mike better only after high school. Howard is right, I think he was misunderstood by many of us. Heart as big as a mountain. c. 1972, we went to a Led Zeppelin concert together with some others at TC Convention Center. We were all in altered states -- I'll leave it at that. We had floor seats, and for the 'Whole Lotta Love' encore, everyone in floor seats stood up in their chair seats...folding chairs... The walls were shaking from the volume and people jumping up and down in their seats, when Mike lost his balance. He threw his big arms out sideways in reflex and took down both people on either side of him and they did likewise to those next to them, all the way to each end of the aisle, which held about 50 people. But that's not all -- Mike had fallen over backwards into the aisle behind us and started the dominoe effect in that aisle as well, so about 100 people were down with their legs in the air. No one was hurt -- one of the funniest things I've ever seen. I think Mike would get a kick out of this occurrence being shared on PHS '69 website. I'll always remember your big grin and hearty laugh, Mike. I don't know why you left so soon; I know we honor your memory. Rest in peace, Brother.
