Mike graduated from Keystone High School in 1975 where he also attended JVS where he studied automotive body repair. Mike was a truck driver for most of his career and worked for many companies over the past 25 years, including Averitt, Swift, Schneider, and most recently he drove for Industrial Transport Services.


Mike will be remembered for his love of driving truck, his love for going fishing at the lake, his love for anything that went fast – motorcycles, cars, and boats, and playing solitaire on his computer. Mike was a talker and did not know a stranger.


A celebration of life will be held at a later date at the lake.
