Mike was a sincere and thoughtful leader, respected by his staff and his peers. I agree with Tony R that this picture captures Mike perfectly. He will be missed.

Kathy and Family so sorry for your loss. We remember our friendship with all the
Good times our families had together. The fun we enjoyed bringing up our children
Together and especially our “adventurous” trip to Florida.
May God be with you and your family and give you strength.

Mike encouraged me to join and participate in both the St. Catherine's Men's Small Christian Community and a desperately needed addition to the modest Kelly Home in Winstead Ct,,; an ambitious St. Catherine's Men's Club project . The Kelly family were doing their very best to raise two autistic children with very scarce funds. Mike was the driving force behind the project. I shall never forget his example of charity to others. Rest in peace Mike.

The photo of Mike is totally the way I fondly remember him—always smiling as well as sharing a good word. I worked with Mike at The Hartford, for a number of years, and always enjoyed being in his company. He’’ll be truly missed ...and will remain in my prayers.
