"Our favorite memories of Michael were how much he loved his family. He was our neighbor in Rancho Santa Fe, CA. This was a vacation spot for Michael and he loved bringing his wife and children here for special time together. What a loving husband and proud father he was! Bob and I were fortunate enough to get to know his whole family. Another great memory we have is flying up to the Hollywood Bowl for a concert and to Beverly Hills for an event for St. Jude. These were sensational charitable events. Michael was a generous host and philanthropist. We were proud to call him a friend. We miss him very much."
