Mike was captain of the batteau Margaret Stevens in 2015. Our lives were all made richer with such a genuine, honest, thoughtful and kind friend. He had a zest for life and the great outdoors– especially the river.
 
Visitation is scheduled from 6-8 pm at Bennett Barden funeral home on Monday, Feb 3.  Plans to celebrate his life are on Tuesday, Feb 4 at 1 pm at St Luke’s Episcopal church in Powhatan. In lieu of flowers contributions may be sent to the Virginia Canals & Navigations Society, 3806 S. Amherst Hwy., Madison Heights 24572.
