Mike was a friend to all who knew him and could light up a room with his smile and laugh. A skilled contractor, he was business partners for many years with his father in DicRis Builders, Inc. and owned Lot Maintenance by Mike, doing landscaping and then plowing snow during his favorite time of year, Christmas. He was an active member of the Rhode Island Builders Association.
Mike loved his construction equipment and his trucks, working in his yard and tending to his gardens in the summer. He would help anyone who needed it, at a moment's notice, and gave the best hugs. To know Mike was to love him and he will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
