Obituary

I was 18 when my mom first introduced me to Mike (I’m 49 now…). Mom would later marry Mike.  One of the places they lived in was Fort Smith, Arkansas.  It was around 1990 that they allowed me stay with them in their house apartment for a couple of months until a new job situation arose for me in North Carolina. I remember having a lot of interesting conversations with Mike in those days.  We shared thoughts and remained respectful of each other.

I was especially impressed with Mike’s ability to restore that old Victorian house in Fort Smith.  Mike used so many different techniques to create an atmosphere in the home which made it feel as though you were living back “in the old days…”.  He had a great talent to envision and recreate something first in his mind, then with his hands – impressive!

I checked in with my mom regularly over the years, especially in her last days until she passed away last October.  Mike was first to have serious health issues, but my mom’s cancers dominated the care.  I appreciate Mike taking my mom to the hospital and doctor’s offices on so many occasions.

Mike was always kind to me, my wife and my kids.  I invite other family and friends to pay your respects for Mike!

    I met Mike about 16 years ago when I was visiting my Mom and Dad in Florida. Mike and Aunt Andrea came over for a 4th of July Pool Party and Cookout. We had such an awesome time. Mike took kindly too my kids and I have pictures I'd like to share. He had such a warming smile and personality and one that will be missed. I know how broken hearted he became after the passing of my beautiful Anut Andrea. No doubt they are together again, smiling, laughing and carrying on!.

    Rest in Peace Mike,

    Sincerely,

    Cathy Hawkins & Family

    When my husband and I moved to Hudson 6 years ago it was our great good fortune to move in next door to Mike and Andrea. We shared many a laugh, many a meal, and many a cocktail with the Fab Four over the years. We fished, crabbed, gardened, and played too many practical jokes to count. While we extend our deepest sympathy to your family in the loss of these special people, we rejoice with you knowing they're all together again. Rest in peace, Mike, and don't tease Andy too much. ❤️

    That was a nice jester Danny. Thank you. Like I said on Facebook

    I called him Mikey. He called me Brenny. I was a pain in the ass. Somehow he looked past it and loved me anyways. My Mom's husband. My Stepdad. My friend.
    I will miss you Mikey. Take care of my Mom. ❤️ And don't argue with Uncle Andy! Well not too much. I miss all of you so much. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Like Danny said. He was extremely talented when it came to building and tefurbushing.
    He loved my Mother and took care of her the best he could the last three years of her life. It was not an easy task. He was ill himself. My Mom loved him so much and now they are together again. Rest in Peace Mikey. You deserve it. Til we meet again. ❤️
