He enlisted with the United States Marine Corp. for several years. Mike was employed with Aluet Management Services of Fort Belvoir, Virginia until his death.

Mike enjoyed collecting coins and watching action and suspense movies. He also loved helping others, but above all, family was the most important thing to Mike, especially his children and grandchildren, and he loved spending time with them.
