Mike was a farmer at heart. From a very young age he
learned the skills of farming and would spend countless hours working the farm. He loved planting his garden and growing food that he would share with anyone who would take it. He was most happy when he was on his tractor tending to his garden or
“just piddlin around his place”.
He served for over 23 years with the U.S. Forest Service. He was called upon many times to travel all over the United States to fight forest fires. In 2015 he retired from the Forest Service as an
Assistant Fire Management Officer.
