So sad to hear the news. I worked with Michael in Citrix and met in person when he visited the Patras office. Such great guy and supportive, always smiling. My deepest sympathy to family and friends.

Michael was a unique, special person. He had the courage to be exactly who he was without wavering. His friendship meant the world to me, and I will miss him every day. His family meant everything to him, and his memory will live on in our hearts forever. May he finally rest in peace. Love you Michael.

I only met Michael once, but we had a lot of fun playing Smash Bros. that night. He was really passionate and fun-loving, a good man.
