Michael was our dear friend and we will miss him. Our sincere sympathy to his family.

Elaine (Penny) Lewaren-Shaver

I will always love Michael as the father of our beloved sons. His spirit and soul will remain always in my heart and I know he has found peace.

Thomas Shaver

Haven't been in touch for years. But 78 is too young! I remember Michael as a good guy, married for a time to my kid sister Elaine. May his soul rest in peace.

Joyce Wehmeyer

Dear Gordon and Christopher, I'm SO sorry for your loss of your beloved father. My love from afar for many years comes from my "sisterly" love for your precious Mama Penny! Peace be with each of you!
