Mike loved watching his son Matthew grow up and was a passionate spectator at his many baseball games and tournaments through little league and College. Mike was so proud of Matthew’s accomplishments and was always there for him. Michael was also an avid dog walker, well known around town walking miles every day with his best furry friends Max and Gentry.
