Mike spent most of his life working for himself. He had several snow cones stands and most recently operated Mikes Barbeque in Haltom City. He enjoyed anything that allowed him to meet people and his larger than life personality made him a success.
Mike was loving and loyal to his friends and family. He made sure they all knew they were loved and ALWAYS kept us laughing. In fact, it is nearly impossible to think of him and not at least smile.
Mike will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved him. However, he would not want us to cry when we think of him, instead he would want us to be happy when we remember the times we had and how he was never ashamed or apologetic for his silliness. He was one of a kind and would be honored if we all would think of him every day and smile.
