  1. Mike Phillips says

    Mike was a year younger than me. His family lived in Rowe Camp in the mid 60s. He had an older brother named Steve, as did I. We were great friends for a few years there. One thing we did when my dad was the janitor at the high school was to help him clean the gym up after the game. We got into the games for free. I have a lot of good memories of Mike and his family. My condolences to his family and friends. I’m awfully sorry to hear he has passed.
