I was so beyond shocked to hear this devastating news. He was such a kind hearted man that would do ANYTHING for ANYONE! I got the pleasure of growing up in the same neighborhood as Mike and Connie for many years, and still continue to stay in contact. Prayers for Connie, Nikki, and all the family!

I have know Mike and Connie Dwyer for many years, I worked at AT&T with Connie in the assignment Department. Mike was always active with us on many different things we did.
He was always a great teaser and always knew just how to get a crowd going.
Everyone always had great fun with Mike and he had a great sense of Humor. I always look forward to seeing him and wondered what he would think of next. Our quarterly lunches at
DeLuca’s Restaurant always seemed to be a lot of fun for all of us and we always looked forward to the next one. I will miss him a lot but I know his spirit will live on within all of us forever.
