After high school Mike farmed with his brother Fred before starting his career at IBP in Dakota City where he was part of Laborers Union Steward Local 222. Over the years Mike was employed with National Carrier of Denison as a mechanic and drove truck for Berne Coop. Mike enjoyed scraping iron and making iron sculptures. He also served as a local fireman on the Ute Fire Department.
On January 1, 2009, an unforeseen accident occurred which left Mike disabled. In 2014 his good friend Steve Butz became his caregiver and looked after Mike making sure he lived his best life. Mike was a member of the Christian Church of Ute, Iowa, until it closed. He then attended the United Church of Christ in Castana, Iowa. Mike loved visiting with folks, collecting International tractors and memorabilia, collecting gum ball machines, and antiques.
Recently Mike kept busy mowing lawns in the summer time and snow removal in the winter.
