Mike grew up in Pulaski and was a 1981 graduate of Pulaski High School. Mike enjoyed working with animals on the family dairy farm when he was younger, and continued to farm for most of his life.

Mike was a kind, generous, loving man who would do anything for anybody, and was also an avid Green Bay Packers fan.
