They moved to Lake Los Angeles, CA and spent 2 years in CO before moving to Kingman, AZ where they lived for 12 years. The last few years were spent residing in North Las Vegas, NV. Mike enjoyed camping and visiting his Air Force buddies, family, friends and National Parks. Always smiling, never complaining. He was deeply loved and will be missed. He had a great love for family and ability to express it. Mike is also survived by Michael's wife Stephanie, Sheri’s husband Dave, 5 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.
