He was a member of the United States Army from 1953 until 1955. During his time in Army, Mike came home to marry LaVona Weathers on January 14, 1954, in Marion. The couple enjoyed 68 years of marriage. Mike was a farmer and rancher. He and LaVona raised sheep and grew crops at their Antelope farm. Mike also worked in the oilfields for a few companies and with his father-in-law. He was a member of American Legion Post 347 in Lincolnville and had been a member of the Odd Fellows Lodge. Mike was an avid fisherman and enjoyed the outdoors hunting and camping. He and LaVona enjoyed attending the Walnut Valley Blue Grass Festival as much as they could.
