Memories Timeline


  1. I worked with Mike at PATH for several years. Mike was a sincere, dedicated, professional and enthusiastic police officer and a very decent man. May he rest in peace and may God console his family on their loss.

  2. I worked with Mike and considered him to be a person I always wanted to have around me. He was dedicated and had a great personality. When I need to clear trees on my property in PA, Mike was the first person I called. If I remember correctly, Mike took topped and took down about 12 trees in 6 hours. During our trip to Australia with the PA Police Mike was always there with his sense of humor. I have great memories of a great man. Love you Brother and will always remember you.

  3. To the Horton Family,

    We will continue to keep the family in our prayers.

    With our Deepest Sympathy. Rhonda Robinson and Family

    Rest in peace ,
