Mike served his community for 21 years as a law enforcement officer, he loved being the hands and feet of Jesus.

Those tournaments included Rodheaver’s Boys Ranch, Haven Hospice, and Friends For Jesus in the Putnam County area where he resided for 25 years. His most recent outreach was to young boys learning fishing skills and coaching sports in Alabama where he resided for the last five years. He was an incredible husband, father, and grandpa.
