Mike met the love of his life, Katie while still in high school. They married in 1999 in a beautiful wedding that would have Mike fist pump after the I Do’s, because he knew he had hit the lottery with that one.

His passion, his determination and his endless love for his family.

In his professional life, Mike was a hardworking individual who approached every task with diligence and determination. He was an arborist who fulfilled his lifelong of dream of owning his own business when he opened Coastview Tree Service in Vancleave, MS. He believed in the value of perseverance and was always willing to go the extra mile to achieve his goals. Yet, amidst his busy schedule, he never forgot to make time for those around him, offering a helping hand or a listening ear whenever it was needed.

Whether he was exploring nature or simply enjoying the company of his loved ones, he radiated a sense of joy and contentment that was truly infectious.
