    Mike was our next door neighbor. I will always remember him as the king of Plunkett Street. Always outside, with a big smile on his face, a cold one in his hand, a variety of his favorite music playing. He always made us laugh & always looked out for us. He liked to conversate & in those conversations I learned alot of different things from him. Rest in peace Mike.

    Mike was my next door neighbor for 5 years, and him and Marylou felt more like family as the years passed. He was certainly a staple on Plunkett Street, always on the porch with a big smile or a funny story to greet us when we came home, and always keeping a watchful eye out on the block. I will never forget all the fond memories of those years, and he will be deeply missed. ❤️

    Mike really liked his Cuban food and he was still Cyndy’s protector. We had gotten off of a cruise and was visiting. Cyndy had bruises all up and down her arms (not from me but Mike didn’t know it) from riding a buggy on one of the excursions. Mike thought I did it. We got that straightened out. He was always a protecter. I will miss him.

    I will forever have my memories of us riding around the air base and North Charleston on his buddy, Teddy’s, motorcycle. When he got his Nova we would ride and talk sometimes taking Maggie wearing her spike collar with us. He is and will be greatly missed.❤️

    Mike…who else is going to listen to me about politics! You were my buddy and no one else brought out the cursing in me like you did my friend! Hodge Twins forever! ❤️

    I have many fond memories of Mike especially riding around on his buddy, Teddy’s, motorcycle. We would ride all around North Charleston and the air base. After he got his Nova, we would ride around together just talking. Some of the rides we took our dog, Maggie, with her wearing the spike collar Mike bought her.

    Mike and I fought alot as kids and even into our adult life. But when the chips were down and we needed each other,we were there. We both had alot of good times together and I will always remember Mike for that. Rest in peace Mike and one day we will see each other again.
