Mike had an extreme love for all of his family and strived to keep in touch and “make his rounds” to visit them whenever he was able.

His kindness extended to all he met.

Mike was a successful business owner and worked hard to make his families dreams come true. Mike had the brightest, friendliest, yet “I’m up to something” smile. He was well known for his awesome, “strictly legal” 4th of July fireworks displays.

Mike was an avid Ohio State Football fan, NASCAR race fan and mustang enthusiast. He was a member of the NRV Mustang Club where he would proudly showcase his mustang and live life in the fast lane.
