Mike died July 29, 2022, in Whitefish, Mont., to which he had retired in 1994.
Born in New York City, Mike led an athletic and active life. At St. Paul, where he prepped, he played hockey and baseball. At Princeton, he started with soccer, then lettered in hockey. He ate at Colonial and majored in the Special Program in European Civilization, concentrating in Spanish. After Princeton, he took up sailing and flying, passions for the next 50 years.
His career began with Chase Manhattan in Panama and Nassau, where he was known as “the flying banker,” flying doctors, nurses, missionaries, and supplies to the Kuna people on Sane Blas Islands, Panama. After Chase, he moved on to become a founding director of Pacific Union Bank in Menlo Park, Calif., followed by a turn at asset management and real estate development, starting a video and satellite TV store, and founding the Lawrence Gallery of Fine Arts in St. Helena, Calif. He skied Whitefish Mountain and loved art and language as well as his dogs. Friends said they hoped to return someday as one of Mike’s dogs.
He is survived by his wife, Sally, whom he married in 2001; daughters Michele and Jackie; sons Christopher and Jonathan; and stepchildren and grandchildren, to whom the class extends condolences.
