Mike worked at Hudspeth Saw Mill in Prineville for several years; he moved to American Pine Products in Prineville for a new adventure in the lumber industry and finally retired in 2017 from Structus Building Technologies of Bend.
Mike was an avid hunter, he loved to ride his ATV’s, take his Toyota pick-up and dogs out to the Ochoco woods and sit and watch the animals walk so close to him he could see their beautiful eye-lashes and look right into their eyes. He loved photography of the wild animals and the beautiful nature.
Mike enjoyed participating in the Black Powder Club, he loved gold panning and going to the coast; he just loved to watch the storms come in and the beautiful sun-sets. In the morning he would walk on the beach enjoying the sound of the ocean and the serenity it brought with it.
Mikes pride and joy was his two sons Gerald and Josh, who hunted, camped and explored the outdoors with him. They did a big bon-fire with fire works, family and friends to bring in the New Year. They worked on re-building vehicles and just becoming best buddy’s as they grew older.
