Mike was one of the busiest guys, whether at work or play. He attended Comstock Schools and graduated in 1964. After high school, he spent some fun time in California with a few buddies. He then enlisted in the U.S. Army Reserves as a dental technician. In 1966, Mike began working with his father at Peerless, Inc. and he continued to own and operate the business to this day. Mike enjoyed building and restoring hot rods and muscle cars. He won many awards at the various car shows over the years. The most memorable car was his 1967 Nova, which he meticulously restored and was featured in Popular Hot Rodding magazine.

Mike was preceded in death by his first wife Jane Leversee, mother of his children. Mike had a loving nature and always lent a hand to anyone that needed his help. His humor, mechanical and fabricating abilities were second to none. Mike will always be in our hearts. He will always be loved and missed by many.
