Mike married the love of his life, Vicki Farmer, in April 1984 and they shared nearly thirty-seven wonderful years together. Mike was exceptionally active when he was younger. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, rodeo and sports. Mike enjoyed watching his grandchildren be as active as he was in his younger years.

One of his greatest qualities was his loving heart, and he offered love to everyone around him.
