Mike enjoyed reading, particularly Game of Thrones and hanging out with his friends (Norm, Steve, T.J., Ricky, Colleen, Jay, Jeff, Scott, and many others). He looked forward to fantasy football every season and watching the games with his buddies. He was very kind and generous, especially to his nieces and nephews who were his life.
