Michael (Mike) was a lifelong carpenter who loved to work with his hands, loved the Eagles and Phillies and was an overall Philadelphia sports fanatic.

He loved reading the newspaper every day and was also a creative chef who loved a bagel with peanut butter and melted American cheese, lunch meat and cheese sandwiches with lettuce and Italian salad dressing among other things.
He also loved the zoo and spending long summer days on the beach in Wildwood Crest at the Grand Hotel. When relaxing at home he enjoyed watching movies, especially comedies or country westerns.
Mike was handsome, fun, happy and enjoyed a good time, including showing off his interesting dance moves, BBQ’ing with friends and family and playing horseshoes. He was always kind to others and his smile was memorable, his laugh infectious.
He is known for memorable sayings and referred to himself as ‘Poppa Dukes’ and ‘Daddio’ to his children. Mike loved to use the phrase “cool beans” and “You know I had to give ‘em the ‘what for”.
