As a young man he worked and traveled around Canada. He came back home to Prince Albert where he was a carpenter and he built many homes. He also had a career as a house inspector for the government up north. Mike loved to learn and was keenly interested in Holistic medicine and healing techniques. He was interested in politics and current events locally and around the world. He enjoyed sharing opinions and ideas. Mike always put his family first and was there to help whatever the need was.
