Mike, as I always knew him, was a classmate at Syms, from 7th grade on.  When we were assigned to homerooms, by our last names, alpha, Mike was always in mine.  He was a very kind, sweet, fun, guy.  I had such a nice conversation with his widow, Rose, this afternoon.  She shared that he was 5 years older than her and that when she met him, he had already graduated from high school.  She said that she met him at Buckroe Beach when he was chasing her girlfriend, but that it was her that caught him.  I loved this story, we laughed about it.  What a great and happy memory to cherish and enjoy.  Well, I will think of Mike and those days so many years ago and when I do, all I will see is that young man full of laughter, fun, and a very big smile!  Rest in peace, Mike, we will miss you.

I played basketball with Mike for a few years.  He was always very competitive!  I did not know him very well outside the sports arena.  Best wishes and prayers to his family.

I played basketball with Mike in high school and I would see him sometimes at the shipyard. My best wishes go out to his family.

As with many of us Mike was a class mate from my days a Syms through graduation. I remember Mikes humor and his love of sports. Always with a smile. The angels will welcome him and treat him well. He will be missed by all of us.

 I too remember Mike from our days at Syms and than Kecoughtan. What I can say is that Mike as I knew him was a hard worker that never let any of us down  I can see Mike now doing those defensive slides.  Mike was an excellent defender.  Mike's middle name was Mr Hustle.  I always admired Mike Bone  as he always put the team before his own personal goals.   He was the type of person that you could always depend on.  I'd bet that's exactly who Mike was in life as well.  Just a plain old good guy .  The world can use a few more Mike Bones.  H White

I had known Mike since I was in the 6th grade. He was always such a kind person with a great smile. MY sympathy goes out to his loved one...Such a wonderful person he was!
