Mike enlisted in the Marines as a 17 year old senior in high school. After graduation, he traveled the world in the Marine Corp and was very proud of his service to his country. Mike loved sports and participated in football, hockey and baseball. Later in life, he became an excellent golfer. Mike was diagnosed with ALS in 2000 and passed away November 3, 2004 at 42 years young. He possessed a very kind and loving soul and was also a wonderful husband, father, son, brother and friend. Mike showed us so much courage and was taken from us way too soon! We love and miss him every day. RIP
