March 10, 1942 - December 2, 2018
Born in Detroit, Michigan
Resided in Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan
A graduate of Aeromechanics Institute in Detroit, Mike spent his working years as a fleet aircraft mechanic, working for American, United, and primarily General Motors Air Transport from which he retired nearly 20 years ago. His bright eyes and easy smile made everyone he encountered at ease. For a lot of us, Mike will always be remembered as Mike the Project Man or Mike the Tool Man. He was never too busy to help his friends and family with projects and repairs, as he was a consummate craftsman and held a general contractor's license after retirement.
