    I will miss Mike’s funny sense of humor and fun-loving spirit and will think of him fondly each and every time I have a pretzel rod or a salami sandwich at “his” beach.

    Michael & I had the privilege of growing up in public school always being at the end of the line. That’s what happens when you are taller than 6 feet in grade school. We usually guarded each other in basketball because of our height. Michael was always very intelligent, kind and considerate. A great guy to be around! Yes, he had a great eye for photography which we enjoy immensely! He will be missed! Our condolences to his loved ones and family! RIP

    Thoughts and hugs with you at this very difficult time. I worked with Mike Dean Witter days 5wtc, he was such a sweet soul, always thinking of others, and shared his goodness through the photos he took and shared. Always helped a friend in need, one of the truly good guys. He will live forever in your heart.

    Mike and I go way back to P.S.100, P.S.90, Mark Twain, and Lincoln H.S. Both living in Luna Park, although we hung out with different people. Three years ago at the Luna Park BBQ, I ran into him. Told him how much I enjoyed his photos of LP and Coney Island. His gentle smile and soft touch personality will be missed. It has been my pleasure to know you, Mike. You will be sorely missed. RIP
