Hello! This is the personal website of yours truly, Mike Tarpey. I found myself discovering other, not-me Mike Tarpeys when I Googled my name one day, and figured I'd get in on the action.

On July 1st, 2009, my mother, Cynthia Marie Tarpey, passed away at the age of 48. 10 months later, on May 11th, 2010, my father, Michael William Tarpey, also passed away. I've created a page to memorialize them as I remember them fondly, and if you'd like to see it, click here.

Enjoy the site. Feel free to e-mail me using the link at the bottom of the page if you have any questions.
