Guest Book & Memories
July 6th, 2020
Eleanor, Peter and all of Mike's family: Please accept my deepest condolences on Mike's passing. Mike was a dear friend and mentor to me at a pivotal time in my life. In the late '80s, I was a reporter on the retail beat at Crain's Chicago Business and Mike represented Phil Miller of Marshall Field's and Bernie Brennan of Montgomery Ward's, among other titans of Chicago's business scene. He graciously hosted me at dozens of luncheons at the Standard Club where we talked about Chicago's business landscape. From Mike I imbibed the love and thrill of corporate transactions, which ultimately led me to earn an MBA, leave journalism and embark on a career in M&A and finance. Always a gentlemen with an infectious grin and laughter, he never failed to ask about the health of my mom. Truly a gentleman and a scholar, he will be sorely missed by me and all who loved him. With love, your friend, Peter Waldstein
