Mike worked in the mortgage department of Marine Midland Bank and I enjoyed a long working and ultimately client relationship with him in my capacity as a real estate attorney at Hancock Estabrook, LLP. Mike as well as his fellow Marine mortgage officers who are now gone were very nice and very capable people. He would have been impressed by the military honors at his memorial service today.

Mike was also the last original resident of Wainwright Ave. Born there, enjoyed life there, and died there, just like my mother Nancy Storto, who grew up with mike right across the street and died there last year. She and mike were the last of the Mohicans ! And the best friends and neighbors! Wainwright ave will never be the same! Miss them all! Sincere condolences

So sad to hear of Mike’s passing. We worked together for many years. He was a true gentleman with a great sense of humor and will be remembered fondly.
