Captain Pete and His Buddy Mike

Hi Joey,
Today is the 7 year anniversary of one of my dads very close friends passing away. I’m sure you remember him, he was very hard to forget. His name was Mike Comfort from Schenectady New York. Dad met him when he would come down to fish at the yankee fleet with his wife Stacey and two step daughters Jaime and Tessah. They became very close, as my dad was like a father to the couple. Mike lived to go deep sea fishing and lobstering with my dad. If you could just write up a little something, that would mean a lot to us and to his widow. She hasn’t been here much since his passing, but she may come down this summer to go out fishing. I have attached a few pictures of Mike living the life he always wanted being a Gloucester fisherman. Thank you.

  • Mike would usually have breakfast with our early morning crowd at Zeke’s restaurant before he went out with Pete. I remember him as a big guy with a mild and friendly spirit. He absolutely loved The Gloucester waterfront and his time on the water with Pete.


  • My heart goes out to his family


  • This made my day and what a great post it is remembering those who have impacted you so much on this path called life! 🙂 Thanks for sharing! Rest In Peace
