Mike was an outdoorsman and an avid angler. He pursued many interests, some of which included watching old westerns, baseball and cartoons with his grandchildren. Mike’s favorite hobby of all was spending time with his friends and family, whom he loved unconditionally. He especially enjoyed family gatherings and the memories made by being all together.
Mike was a great father, PawPaw, boss, and an unbelievable friend to many. He had the gift to gab and a smile that could touch your heart. Mike was a kind, loving and caring man, who will be deeply missed and fondly remembered by all who knew and loved him.
