He worked for McIntosh Construction as a truck driver and heavy equipment operator from the time he graduated up until the closure of McIntosh Construction, then he went to work for Central Truck and Diesel for a short period of time before going to work for Grizzly Excavation, as truck driving and heavy equipment was in his blood.
Mike loved the great outdoors.  He loved fishing, camping, traveling, gambling, old cars and most of all riding in his polaris razor with family and friends.  Mike also had a love for sports and coaching his children’s teams. Though he struggled with pain and medical issues he had many, many wonderful adventures up until the time of his death.
