He loved to host parties and grill for friends and family. But his all-time favorite was cooking “wish” dinners. Mike loved to take his family to events, such as fairs, races, Valley Fair, and camping/fishing. He enjoyed cooking for the church with his M&J Catering. Mike worked his life career as a talented chef. He loved to watch football, and his favorite TV shows: Steve Wilkos, NCIS, Law & Order, American Idol, and many more. Mike’s all-time favorite thing was being “papa Mike." Mike has been a papa since 2017 and enjoyed every moment he had with all five of his grandchildren.
