He loved supporting his favorite sports teams: New York Giants, New York Knicks and New York Yankees.

He was always willing to stop and chat with any random stranger on the street. Loved making people laugh at his bad jokes. It would not be unusual for him to start singing his favorite oldies songs no matter where he was. His claim to fame was being an early member of the singing group known today as the Duprees.  He was also known around the neighborhood as Mike the ice cream man. He also enjoyed random pick-up games of basketball with anyone. He had an infectious personality and had a knack for lighting up any room. He enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his three grandchildren.
