POSTED September 7, 2017 4:52 p.m.

Michael, age 75, passed away at his home in Manteca, CA after a brief battle with cancer.  He leaves his caring, loving family, as well as his loyal, cherished friends, who were always there for him.  He also leaves his constant friend, partner, companion, sweetheart, and her equally caring family.
   Mike, the first of three children, was born in Watsonville, CA to his parents Daniel and Minnie.  He attended San Leandro and Oakland schools, working on various committees.  (Thank you, Doug for the info).  He was a normal kid, who enjoyed camping with his family, who developed life-long friendships, and who played a mean trumpet.
   As an adult, Mike was a welder by trade.
He was employed at Century 21 as a real estate agent, Physics International, and Lawrence Livermore Lab to name a few.
He even partnered in a gold mining company.
   Mike’s annual adventures took him to the wilderness of Alaska, to fish and hunt with his friends.  (You sure had some stories to tell, Don).  His bear stories were exciting, to say the least.  He also packed in to the Sierra every year with his buddies, to hunt that elusive deer.  Hawaii was another favorite destination.
Mike also held a pilot’s license, logging many miles.  He could hold his own on the links, and snow skiing was a passion.
   He was well-known for his culinary skills.  No one went hungry in Mike’s presence.  Those amazing meals will be missed.  Mike loved and spoiled his horse and pets.  They definitely knew life was complete in his care.
   Thank you to family and friends who visited Mike, and who messaged regularly.  That meant so much.  Thank you, also to the doctors and staff of KP at various locations, Doctors Medical Center Modesto, St. Teresa Comprehensive Cancer Center Stockton, Optimal Hospice Care personnel, and Horizon Medical Equipment.
   Mike your stoicism was underiable, until your last breath.  Those holes you left in my heart will heal, but our memories will never fade.
