Mike was fiercely loyal and one of the biggest hearts you will ever know. He was a strong Baldwin City community advocate and was never shy to let anyone know what made the community unique and beautiful. He had a work ethic that some would say was obsessive but never hesitated to put his family before anything. His love of his wife and kids was before any work and it was always clear to anyone who knew him. He had a special sense of humor and loved to laugh and have you laughing with him. He made every moment fun. Mike was fully authentic and determined to finish any job he was given and succeed at what he set out to accomplish. He was also unique that many hours of his life were spent doing what he could to right the injustices of this world when he had the ability to do so. Mike was one of a kind, he was bold, and he will always be missed.
