    We have great memories of Happy times in Ireland with Michael and his boys. Sincere condolences to Tim, Kevin and Maureen at this terribly sad time. Thinking about you all and especially Michael at this very sad time.
  • Tricia Dasilva
    I had the great honor of participating in Michael's care over the course of many years as he awaited a transplant @ UNC. No matter the circumstance, he never failed to be the kindest and most considerate of men. In all our interactions he always made a...  more

    Michael and I sang together at St. Patrick's Church in Malvern, PA. He was like my uncle, checked in with me, always gave a word of advice or laughed at my bad joke. He sat behind me and I was lucky enough to listen to him week in and week out...I loved...  more

    Michael became my friend in 7th grade at St, Jean Baptiste parish grade school. He befriended me, and I was drawn to his brains, his freckles and his grin. What a devoted New Yorker he was, and during summer and Christmas vacations, we walked for miles,...  more

    Michael was very proud of his Irish Ancestry and dual citizenship.
    He spent many hours researching and locating our family in Ireland.

    The Nolans and Brennans go way back, and I have the best memories of walking in Central Park many evenings--just us kids--and then stopping for Cokes and fries at the Yankee Kitchen. Later, when I was in college, Michael seemed to me, as young as we...  more

    Michael and I were classmates at Eymard Seminary. He was a year ahead of me and I remember his intellect, dry wit and most of all his pursuit of having fun.
    We reconnected about a year ago through the miracle of Facebook. We had many long discussions...  more

    We have lots of memories with Mike, but we will definitely remember the Thanksgiving cook, the soccer dad and the humorous uncle. Our most sincere condolences.

    I feel so privileged growing up having Michael as my older brother. I never understood why he said he always wanted to be more like me as I was a handful, when I always wanted to be more like him.
    He was steadfast,intelligent,patient and a devoted family...  more

    I worked with Michael for many years on a number of technology programs at J&J. He was one of my favorite people; deeply passionate about his work and helping others, with a dry and sometimes mischievous sense of humor. I enjoyed hearing him talk...  more

    Michael hired me into SmithKline. Be was a very brilliant man and really loved his kids. One impactful memory I have is losing my father and Mike went out of his way to attend the services. That was really impactful as low level new starter.
  • Dimitris Agrafiotis

    Michael sat next to me on my left in the St. Patrick, Malvern choir for about 15 years before he moved to North Carolina and I moved to Arizona. He had a good sense of humor and a good bass voice. He was always enthusiastic at our annual Christmas...  more

    Michael was a gem. He was a loyal bass member of our St. Patrick Choir for so many years, but more than that, he was a friend. We missed him so much when he moved to N.C. He would join a small group of us on Tuesday nights after practice to have a...  more
