He started out walking the beat with his good friend and brother-in-law, Neil, moving to communications as a Police Alarm operator where he met his wife Brenda, and finished his career in sensitive crimes. Mike enjoyed fishing and golfing with his brothers and nephews, special times at Summit Lake with daughters and grandchildren. He loved all his nieces and nephews, and even when he lost to Kelly. So as he would say "put that in your smoke and pipe it". Roseberry's Funeral Home is assisting the family. Visit www.roseberrys.com for online condolences and further information.
