“Mike” loved his twin sons, family, and his three granddaughters. He was a devoted employee and enjoyed his career as a electrician at General Motors. He was an avid reader and placed high value on learning. He enjoyed nature and educating others about being wise stewards of our environment. He enjoyed recycling, composting, and gardening. Most recently, he was proud of his successful growth of an avacado tree despite an unfavorable climate.
Despite a significant amount of suffering during his life, he did not find value in complaining.
Mike was always proud to see his sons driving “American made” vehicles. With his loyal devotion to General Motors, one of his final request was “Only American made vehicles are permitted in the parking lot and the funeral procession of my funeral”.
