Was saddened to hear of Mike’s passing. Many memories immediately flooded me of this delightful, friendly and oh so funny gentleman. Our friendship goes as far back to Our Lady of Nazareth where we were alter boys serving 6:15 mass together.I was always so amazed at his versatility and spontaneity. Could play the piano like Liberace and entertain you with humor and keep me in stitches all night. His contacts were legend and when I and my friends came into town and needed dates he would immediately line us up with great ladies from the nurses dorm and then takes us out on the town. Lost track with Mike over the years but was able to get an update from time to time from his delightful brother, Kevin. I offer my thoughts and prayers to the OConner family at this time and once again smile to myself when remembering this unique and talented individual 🙏🏻 Fondly Barry Mobley
