Condolences to the family. I worked many years with Mike at AlloyTek and socialized with him on many occasions. We lost touch after the shop closed and he moved. But I always will remember the time spent with him. Fare Well my friend.

It has been many years since I had any contact with Mike. My closest times with him were in the 1960s and hanging out at the former Creston Theater and downtown. I always liked him; and, I sure he matured into a great father and friend in his adult years. My condolences to all of you.

I was not privileged to meet Mr. Amelia. However, I feel as if I did from the wonderful stories that Deb and Scott would share about him. The stories proved that he is a great man of character and courage who cherished family times. In the difficult times to come, may you remember that he will always be with you, watching and smiling down proudly on the family he loves so much.
