I knew Mike when I was going to college at RIT in Rochester, N.Y. and I was working at Fay’s Drug’s in Brighton, N.Y. He was the Manager at Fay’s and a great boss and friend. My condolences to his family!
So sorry for your loss, Mike was a District supervisor for Rite Aid when I met him, He was a great guy and a great Boss, he had a great sense of humor and was compassionate and caring , it was a great pleasure to have worked with him!
So sorry to hear of Mike's passing. I will always have fond memories of Mike from our Whitesboro High School times. Rest in Peace, Mike. The Whitesboro HS Class of 1975 will never forget you.
I had the pleasure of meeting Mike over 20 years ago when he joined the Eckerd Drugs stores. He made me feel so welcome when I visited him in Rochester, NY. He introduced me to a local favorite called the “Garbage Plate” and I also had a few PBR’s for the first time. He will be missed, and my heart goes out to the family.
Mike was a great friend and an even better listener that gave great input, even if it was tough for you to swallow (but you knew he was right)! I will miss the stories from other lands, advice, and most of all his friendship. I know he’s keeping a watch over his family, as you are definitely the highlight of his life.
Micheal Austin loved fiercely and held a grudge even fiercer. He was my dad in all ways... the one who taught me to love all kinds of music; records going every Sunday morning making breakfast, always look people in the eyes, give a good handshake, enjoy the simple things, but indulge when you can, be confident in yourself, ask questions, get dressed up and go out, broadway shows, dufferent restaurants ( it was all about experiences) put your napkin in your lap (lol) and soo many more.
He loved to enrich us with all his travel stories and pictures. It was always exciting when he came to visit to see what new things he had to bring.
We never went without and were blessed with many great memories. I was lucky that he chose my mom and I...it gave me my sister and another family to love.
He was a tough nut to crack, but his grandkids made his heart grow 3x. The little jokes, silly songs, sometimes inappropriate comments hahaha...it's the little things that they will soon realize were the BIG THINGS.
He will be deeply missed and forever loved. Please keep shining your sarcasm down on us all and give Aprile the strength to carry through these next few days.
It was my pleasure to meet Mike at work some 15 years ago. He was always a great colleague and a true and genuine friend. I will miss him. May he Rest In Peace.
I will always remember my 40th birthday I was lucky enough to go to the grand canyon take in the wonder of the world with mike and faye. Mike was a great provider for his family worked so very hard. Saw that none of them went with out. I loved our Christmas together mike would always put on a wonder dinner . Prime Rib cooked just right with all the side makings . Always got a laugh out of mike loving country sweet chicken wings . Mike always had to go there when he came to Rochester to visit family. I am so glad mike got to travel he worked very hard to get to enjoy the few years of retirement. I am sadden that mike didnt get more time on earth as he is truly one person that deserves more time. Rest in peace mike my memories will always bring a smile to my face. God Bless Aprile and her family give them the strength they may need over these days ahead. Amen
I treasure the years I was able to call Mike my friend. He was a good man and respected by many. He shall be missed by many as well. My condolences to all of you he left behind. Until we meet again Mike…
