Words can’t express how much everyone who knew Mike is going to miss him. He was such a good friend and meant the world to my boyfriend Jon and I. I remember talking to him last year about a local artist that we liked but couldn’t afford to buy a painting from. Then one day Mike surprised us with a joint birthday present-a painting by that artist. We were really touched by how thoughtful he had been. We’re so proud to call him a friend of ours and we’re going to miss him more than words could ever say.

Mike was a great friend to me and my girlfriend Sam. He was tragically taken from us in his prime whilst protecting others. He was looking forward to settling down with his girlfriend Emma and we were whole heartedly looking forward to his return from service. We are all distraught to see him gone but take comfort in the fact he died a true hero. We will miss our crazy nights out together, rest in peace mate, you deserve it
