Mike married Mary Asumaa on Dec. 24th, 1985. Together they enjoyed camping and fishing and eventually sharing their passion with daughters, Amanda and Anna. He also enjoyed going to Stubb's Bar on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to shoot pool and when Connie was working, but any other day was okay too. He did enjoy his life.
