On October 5, 2015, Mike passed away at age 51 after his hard fought battle with lung cancer. He was a loving husband to his wife Emily, an amazing father of Devynn (20), Blake (18), Elena (7), and Dane (5), and a loyal friend to many. Mike was raised here in Santa Clarita by his parents, Kent and Cindy, both of whom still call Santa Clarita home, and was one of five children.
Mike was a businessman with a firm handshake that meant something. He was a neighbor who'd help you out when you needed it, and expected nothing in return. Always upbeat and constantly maintaining a positive outlook, despite his tumultuous battle against lung cancer, he didn't let anything get him down.
A memorial fund at the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation has been created to honor Mike and help the many people who continue to search for a cure. The Foundation was a tremendous source of information and support for Mike and his family, and we hope you will consider making a gift to help others dealing with this difficult disease.
Feel free to pass this along to friends and family – thank you!
