During World War II, Mike served in the 442nd regiment and after the war, he moved with the family to Quincy, Washington, where he remained for nearly 75 years. He had a very long, successful career as a farmer. Mike was a quiet man but he did enjoy matsutake hunting, fishing and traveling around to find good seafood restaurants.
