  • "Mike was district sales manager for Bristol Myers when my father, Joe Turney, was a sales rep. In September of 1998 my dad was diagnosed with ALS, Lou Gehrig's Disease. This is a terminal, degenerative disease that ultimately affected his ability to do the job. We kept the diagnosis to ourselves for as long as we could but eventually it became very clear. Mike was really good to my dad and tried to help him as much as he could so that he could continue working. My dad had to retire in December of 1989. He had won the "Best of Bristol" award for that year and was to be honored at a weekend event for all of the recipients. My dad died before the the ceremony. Mike invited my mother and brother to attend the weekend and to accept the award in honor of my dad. Our family was very grateful and receiving the award in his honor was something my mom and brother will never forget. Thank you Mike. My prayers go out to your family."

  • "My heartfelt sympathy and condolences for your family. I haven't seen Mike for a number of years but remember him with fond memories. Mike basically grew up in back of me in Tammany Manor in Williamsport. I was a friend of the entire family and thought highly of his parents and younger brother. Mike and I both played tuba in the South High band and although he was a few years younger than the rest of us he fit right in with the rest of the tuba section. We had practices at his house in the basement when he started to play drums and formed a rock band. I'll always remember the McNew family as a fine family."

  • "We're so very very sorry for your loss. We've known Mike for so long through Bristol Myers Squibb...at least since 1990. Although for the past few years, we'd corresponded typically at birthdays (which he always remembered) and Christmas, we've always thought of Mike fondly and as a dear friend. Sometimes there are no words and this is one of those times. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this immensely difficult time and the days ahead. Our deepest condolences, Mary and Michael Friedman"

  • "My husband, Dirk, and I are so very sorry to hear this new. Mike was a great guy who was friends with my brother Sam in school. He was always highly regarded. We are so sorry for your great loss."

  • "This was quite a tragedy. I knew both Jeff and Mike. Didn't know about Jeff's passing. Both boys (as I knew them), were wonderful human beings. My dad knew their father from work, and always spoke highly of them. Michael and Jeff were both gentlemen of the old fashion kind. Their presence will live on in those who knew them. God bless them to their heavenly home."

    -  Elaine Showe (Langham)

  • "As I remember Mike and the time we spent over the years, Mike's warm smile, caring personality and kind and generous nature are at the forefront of each memory. A good friend and truly generous man who will certainly be missed by all who knew him. I'm going to miss the dinner parties with Mike and the friends he would invite as well as the "Christmas of misfit toys" that we shared the last couple years. Condolences to Katharine, Patrick, family and friends. Thoughts and prayers to all of you. Heaven's gain is certainly our loss. The world lost a good one. Rest in Peace, Michael. "
