Katie, Sarah, Heidi, Jill and Family;
I was so sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. He was one of the good guys who made the world a better place just by being a part of it.
His professional accomplishments were many but for me, I will always remember the contributions Mike made to CTS and our success. He was one of our first employees and served for 13 years on our Board of Directors. I could always count on Mike for solid advise and to pick me up if I or CTS were going through a rough patch.
Mike introduced me to Spring Training and I’ll remember very fondly our times In Tampa with him, my son and son-in-law as we welcomed Spring and another baseball season together.
But most importantly, I will remember Mike as simply a very nice guy and a true gentlemen. The world would be a lot better off with more like him. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and each of you.
Dave White and Jackie Jones.

Mike was our Transportation Coordinator at Workforce Alliance for 15 years and was loved by all, including the die hard Red Sox fans. He had a keen sense of humor and was friendly and engaging with everyone. The one thing that I remember most is that Mike always played Santa at our office Christmas parties. He didn’t just hand out the Secret Santa gifts, he did so a mix of humor, personal insights, often sprinkled with Yiddish humor. He also would on occasion, blow the Shofar before the party began. Mike kept in touch with current and retired staff over lunch. We will miss his humor, his friendship and his kindness.

Lovely service, lovely day, if somewhat windy. Deepest sympathy to all. I feel like I was there. Loved that the rabbi mentioned “Warm of his presence and smile . . . and twinkle in his eye” very much resonated with me. Look to the day I can visit and and place a pebble on his stone.

Watching Jill read at her father’s graveside. A wonderful legacy, his three girls he has left behind, and Katie, of course Katie…through it all always there.
I will miss Michael. The wonderful memories we shared on Martha’s Vineyard.The discussions about which baseball team was going to win that year, (Red Sox vs.Yankees). Michael was as good a gracious loser as he was a humble winner.
Rest in Peace Michael…finally.

I worked with Mike at Workforce Alliance. We had some really great conversations. I came from Brooklyn N.Y. (Park Slope) He had said that is daughters lived there. Every year Mike, myself and three other co-workers went to Yankee Stadium. It’s funny that we both worked at Caldors for many years, yet we didn’t meet until we worked at Workforce Alliance.
Many great memories.
Will miss you very much

Have such wonderful memories of Michael and Katie from all our trips to Woodmont. Roy of course treasured their relationship and mutual summer experiences as they grew up. Michael had a great sense of humor, warmth and caring attitude. We have lots of memories, but that will never make up for his loss. All our love to Katie, Heidi, Jill and Sarah.

Dear Kathie and family

From the first few minutes I spent in Mikes office at CT Works where we worked together we became friends
We shared offices next to each other we had many lunches together . When my brother came to work for the same organization our friendship with Mike became even stronger as we considered him part of the family he was a mentor a friend and much more
He was a intellectual human gentleman
I loved our conversations about everything politics ,food ,religion ,kids ,everything
I had the pleasure of spending some time on the beach at his house with his family and mine
He loved my son and was thrilled when I would invite him to a school performance He would share back a performance of Allie
His daughters were his pride and his life
Not a day went back he wouldn’t talk about one of his daughters if not all of them at times.
He had a big heart and knew exactly how to make me laugh on my lowest point days
Mike Rest In Peace my dear friend I will miss you but you will always be alive in my heart and mind.

Please accept my condolences

Dear Katie and Krauss family,

I have always treasured my cousin Michael as a warm and wonderful man. He was my trusted and supportive friend before, during and after my mother’s death. Michael, who had once stood in my shoes, not only could empathize with me, there were times when he and I were both able to shed tears together without any feelings of embarrassment.
In addition to being a truly caring soul, Michael had the uncanny ability to add comical relief in the midst of some pretty sad situations. I really admired his great ability to offer clever responses – even Michael’s sarcasm had notes of poignancy mixed with humor.
Commiserating with him always lifted my spirits, and I will always feel blessed that Michael was my cousin.

I feel that throughout his life, Michael’s gift of gab coupled with his beautiful ability to share the feelings of another was a special and endearing trait that he possessed – bless his heart. May all your cherished moments and memories of dear Michael help to heal your hearts. With sympathy and love to you all, cousin Nancy Sachs Mooney

Growing up in Milford, I have known Mike for 62 years where he, Stan Kavan and I became very close friends. College and life events took us in different directions for many years until about 15 years ago when we reconnected and shared many memories. Since then, we stayed continuously in contact sharing dinners and Yankee games when we travelled to and from Florida. During baseball season, Mike and I along with a few other friends would “Armchair Manage” the Yankee games together via email or text messaging. A terrific guy … always witty and quick thinking and a true friend.

There is so little one can say. Mike, and Ron, were a huge part of my early childhood. The loss of one of the Krauss boys is hitting Linda and I hard and we are sorry the virus situation does not allow us to be with you. Please give our regards to the rest of the family.

I remember Cousin Mike when we were kids, and my parents would bring us to visit. We always had such fun together! So many decades, and so many miles between us since, but I never would have thought the next time I’d hear my cousin’s name would have been for this reason. Love to the family.

I was so sorry to hear of Michael’s passing. Michael and my mom, Elisa, worked together for many years at Workforce Alliance. I had the privilege of getting to know him over those years while having many great conversations with him. He was truly a great man.

I am so sorry to hear of Michael’s death. He was a member of the spiritual reminiscence group I facilitated at Mary Wade. Despite his limitations he always made himself understood and contributed much to the group. He was a very kind man. I will miss him.
