M, obituaries


  1. Michael was a very good guy, going out of his way to help people whenever he could with whatever they needed. Many times over the years he has done work on my wifes vehicles at various locations where he worked.

    Michael and I were very good friends growing up, and hung out together alot in school. Life interrupted later and we didn’t stay in contact much, although we never lived more than a few miles away from each other. We both had families and it seems we concentrated on that (as we should have). But he would still do whatever he could to help whenever he was needed.

    Mike was a class act, a true friend, and a great guy to have as a friend. Even though we did not stay in touch much, I will miss him greatly. God Speed my friend, may you Rest In Peace.

  2. Today so many are hurting, remembering, and trying to comprehend the passing of Mike McRobbie. He was a beloved father to my nieces and nephews, an uncle to my children, a friend and fellow classmate and my brother in law for over 25 years. He had many titles. Even though distance kept us apart..I will never forget his acts of kindness and selflessness when it came to friends and family. So saddened by your sudden passing and the grief that your family and most imporatantly your children are going through. Forever in my memories. ❤
