Mike was a pillar of the fish hobby helping to establish a bunch of the fish clubs still going today. I learned a good bit from Mike, his no no nonsense common sense approach taught me a good bit I still use today. His knowledge, leadership and sense of humor will be missed.

My condolences to his family.

Rest in peace Mike.

Mike was the backbone of the aquarium hobby in northeast Ohio for well over 60 years. I'm proud to say that I worked with Mike on various projects to help promote the hobby and lead to the creation of the EXTRAVAGANZA.

He will always be the OCA's Emperor Emertius. Thanks Mike for your dedication, your humor, and most importantly your friendship. I know your happy as we speak being back together with Rosemary. God bless you!
