Mike had an adventurous spirit and was always meeting new people which allowed him to form many life-long friendships.

After his retirement in 2001 he enjoyed staying busy and worked various jobs to fill his days. One of his favorite positions was working at Smith & Edwards in the horse and tack section.

Mike has always been a person that turned his dreams into reality. One of his biggest dreams came at a young age when he decided to be a be a Cowboy. Mike enjoyed everything outdoors including riding his horses, fishing, and panning for gold. He had a smile that could light up a room. He was a great listener and had a way of making everyone feel like they were the most important person in the world. He will be remembered for many different things but most of all his gentle heart and kind spirit. One thing is for sure, If you were lucky enough to come in contact with Mike, you were truly referred to as his friend from that point on. Mike made a huge impact in the life of everyone he knew and he will be deeply missed.
