Michael was born in Melville, January 2, 1974- he was Melville's New Year baby that year. All his schooling was in Melville, graduating from the Melville Comprehensive high school in 1992.

Mike was an all sports guy, both as a participant and a fan. Hockey was his passion.

He then carried on his hockey career as a senior player with the Grenfell Spitfires, Wawota Flyers, Altona, Bienfait Coalers and the Midale Mustangs. Mike attended the University of Regina and obtained his Bachleor of Administration degree in 2001.

He had summer jobs in Sintaluta, Kelso, Ituna then began his full time career with Pioneer in Balgonie then Winnipeg and finally settling in Estevan for the past 14 years.

Mike was very involved with the kids activities especially with McKenna's volleyball. He was very proud of her dedication and all of her hard work as he was all of the children. Mike always made a special effort to always know what was going on in their lives whether it was a chat while watching a hockey game, a stop by their room or a random text. He always checked in on them. Mike never entered a room without asking how our day was or if anyone needed anything....He was the most thoughtful man we have ever met.

Mike will always be remembered for his smile and his hey buddy attitude. Wherever Mike went he instantly made lifelong friendships with lots of laughter.
