Mike was a cook for most of his career and worked for Lemolo Lake resort and Diamond Lake resort, where he loved spending his time. Mike enjoyed cooking and hearing people enjoy his food. He also enjoyed fishing, watching movies, collecting hot wheels, playing with remote control cars, and watching concerts either Live or Live on video. Mike worked as the cook for Rooster’s Restaurant, which he enjoyed and worked up until he could not work any longer.
Mike was a hard-working man who would give the shirt off his back if it made someone else happy. He would help the homeless and less fortunate when he was able to. He loved his family very much and did what he could to make them happy. He had a kind soul and was a good friend to many. We love you and miss you very much!
