I think Michael was in his late 50's. I am not sure of the cause of his death. I do know that he had been ill for awhile. Yes, he was a Class act and will be missed by many.

Was Michael on the Breakaway in April? I think the piano player was named Michael but don't remember his last name.

Michael died in May of 2014.  He died in the Philippines with his wife and her family.  He had been ill for a long time.  It was a very sad time for all who knew him.  The person who told me was also an Norwegian entertainer and she has since died.

I’m sorry for his passing and your grief, Brad.  He made many people happy and forget their troubles with his talent.  The world is a lesser place without Michael.

So many wonderful comments from so many people. Make's me feel a little happiness for my old friend . When we were young, we traveled the world together for free. How...Both of our wives who became good friends worked for an airline. Many Great Memories. I guess Mike died doing what he loved most, Playing his Music and seeing the world. Does any one know what Mike died of. Is Mike Buried in the Philippines. - If you would like to see some happy days from long ago - Please see my YouTube Slideshow (Only 9 Photo's) - https://studio.youtube.com/video/RI7SKErD0Uk

Sounds like Mike had another good friend- ("You" Being a Son of a Son) . Can you tell me who you are and how you knew Mike.- bpprice@telus.net. - One more question, was Mike living in the Philippines or Vancouver

At the time of his death, he was living in The Philippines with his new wife and her family.  He met her on The Gem-- she was staff.

 

Michael was well loved by the staff of the Gem, the staff and his many many friends.

 

Michael was what I call as a "Piano Purest".  He did not attach anything to his piano.  He was just him, his big black notebooks and the piano.

Thank You for this wonderful picture of Michael.  Brings back many many fond memories.  Not sure where he is buried.  He was a gentleman in every sense of the word.  Very sad loss for many including me.

Do you have an e-mail address

Maybe you could send me your phone number.

I will call you if that is OK and have a chat.

PS...I am older (67)  married for 33 years and harmless and I don't bite
