I shared two chapters of life with Mike. The second was an older adult but I have 100's of memories of Mike from my teen days. I really loved him. He was the first to take me fishing and the first to take and teach me how to hunt. I drove his car on Saturday afternoons many times when I was almost 15.This was a man who designed and built the family home in Amherst from scratch along with several friends. I was relegated to digging the footer for the garage, by hand! He loved to laugh and do some crazy stunts like water ski at night. Mike was a very consistent man. Never did he exhibit wild mood swings or anger. He genuinely like people and loved his family. Never did I hear a disparaging word about his wife Jan.My dad had a saying that "you can count your friends with one hand and that Mon and Pop took up two fingers". If you were fortunate to have Mike as one of those fingers you are the better for it. Forever Remembered- Inspired Russian for those who have passed away.God Bless Your Soul,Vic Kibalchich
