Mike, as part of your Chantilly crew, I am so saddened by your loss. I've worked for you for over 5 years mostly in Northern Virginia. I was proud to be part of your amazing customer service such that repeat business was routine. When we worked together at other shows on the odd moment, it was easy to chat with your for hours after the show. You were strongly opinionated; strongly defensive of what you believed in (especially Roxey and Casey), and simply strong. An ox. Watching you load the truck proved it again and again. I can't believe you are no longer here. You were just becoming a renaissance man. You'd lost weight, were feeling great. Next show I attend, I probably will hear you saying, "How ya doin' Di?" I'm glad Roxey and Casey will accompany you on your next journey.

My deepest sympathies to Michael's family. While, I did not know Michael...I can only imagine the loss you feel. I hope that friends can comfort you and prayers will sustain you. And as 1 Corinthians 1: 3,4 says may "the God of all comfort, who comforts us in our trials" comfort you. Again, my deepest condolences. - Cassandra R.

We always looked forward to seeing our friend Mike at the Gun Shows. Always cutting up with us. He in his Ford truck that he was so proud of and us in our Dodge. We raced up Afton Mountain pulling our trailers and he won. Expo was last time we saw him. His parting words to us was drive safe boys......we will miss him Scott and Joe

What a shock it is to read that Michael is gone. While on my way to shop, I wondered if I might run into Michael and Miss Mary at the Food Lion, only to see the news. I only knew Michael and his Mother in passing, through some shared interests, and always enjoyed our talks. I am truly saddened by this tragic loss for his Dear Mother and family & friends. I will think of Michael and Mrs. Halajcsik with fondness and sorrow for the loss of a good man. May The Lord keep you in his care as you go forward. Goodbye Michael.

I learned of Mike's passing today at the Hampton gun show and it just about floored me. Mike was a great person, and a wonderful part of the gun community. I am going to miss talking with him and everyone else that was part of the crew. Rest in Peace Mike. Heaven welcomes you and have faith that your pup crossed that rainbow bridge. You shall be missed.

I only knew Mike from the gun shows. On the occasions I talked to and / or purchased from him, I found him to be knowledgable, helpful, courteous and a gentleman. He also had quite a personality. He will be sorely missed. God bless.
