Mike worked as Software Programmer, Systems Analyst, I.T. Director and was recently retired. He studied at The University of Texas at Austin; Lived in Austin, Texas; he spoke English, German, and Spanish. He was raised in Harlingen, Texas.
Mike was my best friend in high school. We were connected in such a way that neither time, nor distance could break. I had been searching for him for several years and we just made contact in March of 2011. I was happy to be in touch again and the friendship felt just like it did in our youth. We had cut our fingers to make ourselves blood brother and sister (in our senior year of high school) and I still love him as a brother. It seems he was loved by everyone who had the pleasure of walking thru life with him for awhile. His death came suddenly and was unexpected and there are many feeling a hole in their hearts...this world was a much softer place with his smile in it. Mike was a caring, gentle soul who gave all of himself and took little.
Mike is survived by his parents David and Wanda Bridges of Harlingen, Texas and his brother Richard (Ricky) Bridges, and daughter Shannon of Austin, Texas. His ashes were laid to rest in a bed of flowers.
