In spite of his disability, Mike lived every day to the fullest. He would stay busy recording movies or listening to his vast collection of classic rock and roll. He was always smiling. He enjoyed his family, entertaining his friends, and telling stories.  He was an inspiration to everyone around him, and will be greatly missed.
