He placed life’s importance on knowing and loving Jesus. He enjoyed being a strength athlete since his teenage years. He competed in powerlifting until 2008, achieving first place Master’s Awards, including best lifter. He continued lifting weights until his strength was exhausted. He was a dedicated sports fan, and watched all his children’s sports events. He could recite sports statistics and trivia from his lifetime without fail. Mike liked classic rock music, but warmed to his youngest son’s interest in original family-friendly rap music. Second to his love of family, Mike took great pleasure working at Shiawassee Health and Wellness as an Employment Skills Builder.
