Mike was a people-person, never meeting a stranger. He loved to talk about the Word of God, Georgia football, and politics. His life was marked by sacrifice for the Kingdom of God, his friends and family, and any who were in need. Famous for his humility and generous spirit, Mike stored up treasures in Heaven and has finally found rest in the presence of his Savior.
