He left behind many that loved and cared for him on April 15,2017. Mikey was a very loving kind hearted young man who would help anyone in need. He was a very responsible, level headed, and hardworking young man. He had a spontaneous nature about him when he was free to show it. He loved riding his four wheeler and hot rodding in a 68 Ford truck that him and father had built together. He was a very adventurous person that was up for all types of fun. He enjoyed his line of work as a heavy equipment operator and was talented and humble enough to learn the wisdom and advice of older co-workers. He was also talented in many other trades and skills but also could take a moment to stop and enjoy the beauty of Gods’ work in nature as well.
