Mike was a man of many talents and hobbies. He was a Veteran, retired from electrical and construction work, an ordained minister, and an all-around Handyman. He loved to hike, collect knives, read his bible, and spread God’s word, he played pool, enjoyed target practice, fixing things, sudoku puzzles, listening to music, helping anything in need, but most of all being a great father and an even better grandfather.
