I am so sorry to learn of Mike's passing.  He was such a kind and sweet guy.  I have good memories of seeing Mike in the halls of BCHS.  He will be missed.

The following was in an email sent to the website by Tom Howell, a neighbor in the community where Mike lived at the time of his passing.

"I was not a classmate of Michael Brown's but I lived in the community that he lived in at the time of his passing, i Meet Michael Brown February 2021 when I move to Arizona, he was the first person to greet me into the community. after meeting him I learned that he would help people get to doctors appointments that didn't have cars and would also drop food off for people that didn't have food, he was also very active in the community, picking up stray dogs and giving them a home at the time of his passing he was caring for over 13 dogs the whole Community was stunned, and still is. With his passing Michael Brown was a good guy and will always be missed."
