Many years ago The "Ooch" Family camping group was formed and over the years some of Mike's happiest and most memorable moments were spent on these trips. He enjoyed his neighbors on Franklin Street and was always there to lend a helping hand. Mike enjoyed bowling and golf and achieved the famed "hole-in-one", he loved his four legged companions and will be remembered as a generous, caring, giving man.
Mikes family was most important to him, he was the best uncle to his 18 nieces and nephews, his "first children" until his most heartfelt time when he and Deirdre made their adventurous journey to Russia to adopt Lidia & Dylan and complete their family. From that day on Mike was an incredible dad, he was an assistant scout leader for Dylan & Troop #6069, assistant coach for Lidia's softball team, "Batavia Angels" and was always there to cheer on his kids at hockey, baseball and soccer. He was so very proud of his family and the life that he and Deirdre built together and those memories will live on forever.
