I was brought back to the Moana Surfrider after the pandemic and Mr Czarcinski welcomed me with open arms and tho it was a short time he made me feel like I mattered and that my voice was heard. This is a great loss for Marriott, all of hospitality and more over a great and loving family. Sending the family all my strength ❤️

Darlene. I reconnected with Mike recently as he found out I was dealing with my own battle with cancer (lung). I know you don't know me, but Mike and I were hospitality friends. I worked in the industry for 45 years. My wife Nancy and I relocated to Frisco, TX around 3 years ago. As you enter this new part of your journey missing Mike, please let us know if there is anything we can do to help. We are just up the road from you. We surely send our condolences. Mike wsa a treasure and always will be. He may no longer be here physically, but will always be here with us in spirit! Warm personal regards, Jack

Mike was the tall quiet classmate with a radiant smile . We reconnected on FB. And he was so sweet with my oldest son when he found out that Mike worked at the Bonaventure lol. Mike loved all of you with all his heart. He will be missed by all

Corona Del Mar ,

I first met Michael while working at Starwood. He would travel with our sales team to China at least once a year and was so helpful and gracious as we were developing our service and sales strategies for the market. I will never forget asking Michael for help with a room at the Westin Bonaventure while my son an I went on college visits throughout California. He not only gave us a room, but a bi level suite for my son and I with a congratulations amenity each night. Needless to say, this forever is a part if our memory of him. A kind and gentle soul and human being. We will miss Michael. My sincere condolences to Darlene and the entire family. My prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Darlene, I am SO very sorry. I was a dorm mate of Mike ("Chinsky") at J&W Stevens Hall. I remember when he treked-out on foot during the Blizzard of '78 (on foot) to be with you. I was not surprised, when we caught up in LA a few years ago that you both were happily married all these years later. He was "one helluva man!" ( He'd understand that college salute.) Condolences to you and family. Love, Schneck
