We never found time for that round of golf at Burlington or Little Mill. If we had, we would have discovered our common past of growing up in Trenton and living on 'Hawk Hill'. Always enjoyed times in the Tutoring Room at RCBC. RIP

I didn’t know him personally but he graduated the same year. I knew him to be kind, smart and a good basketball player. Rest In Peace Mike.

My husband and I were saddened to learn of Dr. Ward’s tragic passing. Our family were patients of Dr. Ward years ago. Our children are in their forty’s now but they still remembered him. They recall his kind and gentle nature. One time in particular our son got hit in the mouth at his Little League baseball game and his front teeth got pushed in. We called Dr. Ward and he told us to meet him at the dental office. He would have his children with him as his wife was volunteering at their school. So my wife met him there with his children in tow. How many dentists would do something like that? We never forgot that kindness and dedication. That’s the kind of person Dr. Ward was. We send our deepest condolences to his wife and his family. It’s never easy losing someone you love especially when it is unexpected. We hope by sharing our story of this wonderful man will help ease your pain in some little way. Our most sincere sympathy to your family. RIP Dr. Ward.

I am so sorry to hear this tragic news and will be praying for him and your family. As a kid, he always made my dentist visits a calming, caring experience. :) He was a gentle, kind soul.
