Anyone who knew Mike knew that he was the most loving spouse and father a family could ask for. His family meant more to him than anything else in the world, something he often mentioned. The family spent a great deal of time at their lake house on Possum Kingdom Lake where Mike loved to take Carol, the kids and their friends skiing and tubing. He loved his motorcycles and classic corvettes. He was an avid Civil War and Abraham Lincoln history buff and had an extensive collection of books and memorabilia. Mike was an even greater fan of the Texas Rangers and he and the family enjoyed many decades of season ticket seats. 
Mike was preceded in death by his father, Dennis and his mother, Jean.He is survived by his wife, Carol, their two children, Meghan and her husband Ross Prokop and Brian and his wife Amy Sheehan. He is also survived by his grandson Lincoln and his brother Dennis and his wife Diane, plus an untold plethora of friends and colleagues. 
Memorials can be made in his honor to the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program or Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas. Both causes were very near and dear to Mike's heart.

I am so sorry to hear Mike passed away. What a great guy. I did not know he lived in Aledo or I would have run him down. I remember all the fun times from middle school and Paschal.
