Mike loved being a part of the American Legion Riders. He was a strong voice for Veterans, making them aware of his service related cancer, so they may seek advocacy.

He enjoyed playing the banjo in bluegrass bands with friends, and attending festivals. Mike loved working on his cabin in West Virginia and living life to its fullest by being surrounded by the people he loved.
