Mike’s life was devoted to his family and his work. He always had a sparkle in his eye for his many nieces and nephews who captured his heart from the very beginning. He had a heart of gold that always shined through when he was doing anything for his family. He will always be remembered for his infectious laugh and witty sense of humor.
