His favorite name, by far was Gampy. He had seven grandchildren that were the light of his life. Bailey, Grayson, Trinity, Mason, Harper, Gaberiel, and Emma. He formed special relationships with each of them.
Mike enjoyed hunting, fishing, working with his hands, and being with his family. He was a kind, patient, humble, and gentle man. He had a kind word for everyone, and left people better than they were before. Mike was a strong lover of Christ and brought many people to the Lord.
