Mike was elected and served as a Dushore Borough Councilman for over fifteen years. Mike was always willing to lend a hand.

 

     He enjoyed baseball, especially the Philadelphia Phillies. He traveled all over Pennsylvania and New York, attending baseball card shows, autograph parties, charity auctions and minor league baseball games. He also enjoyed going to Phillies Spring Training in Clearwater, FL.  Mike was an avid hunter, having many trophy bucks, and enjoyed ice fishing in his younger years.
