Michael was a father figure to many especially Nate, Steven, Mark, Josh and Buddy.
One of the many highlights Mike looked forward to, was Janis’ planning of the yearly family vacation. They ranged from the Caribbean to Maine. They included what looked like haunted houses to 5 star resorts, and somehow always included more than just immediate family.
Mike had the honor of working the last 13 years for Arnie Berkowitz at Circle Valve Technologies, Inc. Harleysville, Pa. His work was his passion and his boss was his friend. He considered his coworkers his extended family.
