For many years, Mike worked as a brick layer for different contractors throughout the area working on numerous projects. Most recently, he worked at Morris Packaging.
Mike had a passion for being outdoors. He could often be found deer hunting, fishing, mushroom hunting, and searching for arrowheads. Mike enjoyed going to the Osage River with his family, where he did a lot of snagging and fishing. Mike loved to grill, and he was very proud of his pork steaks. His girls remember pork steaks and macaroni and cheese as one of his best dinners. Mike also loved to sing karaoke, never failing to serenade them with Johnny Cash.
