Ever since his children Brynn and Michael were young, Mike did anything and everything he could for his kids to succeed. Along with his beautiful wife Nicole, they were the pride and joy of his life. Mike coached his children in every sport they played, including baseball, hockey, soccer, basketball, softball, and golf. Coaching was his true passion, as he not only impacted his kids’ lives, but he left a mark on countless kids he took under his wing. He served as a father figure for many, guiding them through life, and teaching many life lessons along the way.
Coaching and sports were such an important part of Mike’s life. Mike’s passion for sports carried over to his son’s athletic career at The Haverford School.
Sending his two children to receive a private school education were among some of his proudest moments he had as a father. His son Michael attended The Haverford School which was made possible through academic and athletic scholarships, and it was something he deeply appreciated.
The baseball, hockey, and golf teams along with the excellent academics at Haverford hold a special place in Mike’s heart. Every year, the Haverford School hosts a scholarship luncheon for their students who earned a scholarship to attend the school. It was one of his son’s favorite days of the year. Knowing Mike, he would want nothing more than seeing other kids be given the same opportunity in the future. His family asks that you consider a donation in Mike’s honor. A fund is being created in Mike’s memory at The Haverford School.
Building men of character is The Haverford School’s essential mission. We think there is no better way to honor Mike’s memory as he was and always will be a man of great character.
