Mike loved nothing more than to be

while cooking up his latest cowboy style dish, telling stories of his
childhood and selling "penny" pocketknives. He had quite the passion
for construction and concrete and leaves behind thousands of miles of
both. A man of strong conviction and faith, he often shared and studied
the Word of God. He also was a member of the Travis Masonic Lodge.
He leaves behind a host of family and friends that will miss him.
