  1. Dear Linda, I wish to offer my condolances to you for the loss of your husband, Mike. Mike and I established a bond while working together on the LAFD at Truck Company 66 in 1966 in South Central Los Angeles. We continued our careers by working in Battalion 7 as a 2 man team and again as Officers in Hollywood and again in the LA Harbor. I consider Mike as the finest Fireman I ever had the privilege to work with. We responded to thousands of fires and other types of emergencies. Mike never complained, he just did what had to be done and he did it well. I always felt Mike was one of my own family. Mike served as a pall bearer for my Father alongside of my Sons. Mike knew me better than anyone else and was always there when I needed help. I will always chrish my last conversation with him prior to him leaving. I will miss Mike. He will always be in my thoughts. God Bless You, Larry Schneider

  2. Hello Linda, We are so sorry to hear about Mike’s passing. He was a good friend, an outstanding person to work with and the second best firefighter on our department. The best was the boss that Mike and I worked for while we worked at 38’s together. We have lots of good memories of a good person and our sympathies go out to you for your loss. Our love and best wishes, George & Annie Bauman
