He was educated through the Alexander City School System and was a 1977 graduate of Benjamin Russell High School. Mike was previously employed in the tire sales, automotive, trucking, and pest control industries. He enjoyed collecting old glass bottles and antique implements, slow dancing with his wife to 70’s music on the back porch, was an avid turkey hunter and outdoorsman, loved to read, was a jokester who loved to laugh, and… ROLL TIDE.
