Mike loved working at both places, where he made many lifelong friends.He was a member of the Salem Rifle and Pistol Club and a fan of the NY Yankees and Dale Earnhardt and NASCAR. He loved to travel, see new places and meet new people. He didn’t know a stranger and loved to talk with everyone. He greeted everyone with a handshake, hug or kiss. He truly loved people and would be the first person to arrive if anyone needed help. Mike enjoyed the little things in life, like day trips with his wife, working on his antique Nova, visiting family and picking his grandkids up from school to spend the afternoon eating out and visiting antique and thrift stores. He was a devoted, caring man who everyone loved to be around.Mike’s wish was to be cremated, followed by a private gathering.
