Mike served 4 years in the Air Force and then he began his long career with the Spokesman Review. After retirement he participated in the Veterans court where he mentored several veterans, helping them through their difficult times. He began working at the Airforce base where he truly enjoyed working with his grounds crew. Mike taught his sons to have a strong work ethic – he often worked multiple jobs at one time, coached their sports and did it all while working nights and all on just a few hours of sleep. Although he often didn’t say it, he loved his wife and sons and had great pride in their accomplishments.
