In Memory of Michael "Mike" Briere



Class of 1971
Lee-Davis High School

        Briere, Michael Jerome, Lieutenant Commander Diving Officer, USN (Retired), age 61 of Panama City, Florida, formerly of Mechanicsville, Virginia, passed on February 21, 2015 surrounded by family and close friends.

Following graduation from Lee-Davis High School, Mike enlisted in the USN in 1971. Upon graduating from Boot Camp in the Great Lakes, he then served on the USS Dixie, USS Dennis J. Buckley and USS Ajax. Mike was the recipient of the Combat Action Ribbon, Meritorious Unit Commendation and the Vietnam Service Ribbon while serving on the USS Buckley during the Vietnam War. He completed his active duty service at Pearl Harbor serving at the Harbor Clearance Unit One. Following his retirement from active duty in the USN, he then served as a reservist until his retirement in 2003.

Upon discharge from active duty, Mike lived in Honolulu, Hawaii where he graduated from the University of Hawaii with a Mechanical Engineering degree.

While in the USN, he received advanced diver training and worked as a deep sea salvage diver. He continued to use his diving knowledge and expertise as a civilian employee of the Navy Experimental Diving Unit in Panama City, Florida. Mike’s passion was flying and he loved his airplane 444PP and spent many enjoyable hours caring for and flying his beloved taildragger. Mike was a member of the Quiet Birdmen and was well respected among his fellow aviators. Mike volunteered his time and passion for flying by volunteering with Angel Flight and the Civil Air Patrol. Additionally, Mike’s flight training included the certifications and ratings of commercial and private pilot to include single engine, multi-engine, instrument, seaplane and glider.
