First and foremost, Mikey loved his two sons, Brandon and Connor. They were the light of his life and he would do anything for them.
Mikey was a good student and a perpetual learner. He always loved learning and was naturally smart. Learning came easy to him; he didn’t have to work at it.
He also was very involved in all sorts of activities while growing up. He loved drama club and was in every school play. He enjoyed karate, sports and art, just to name a few of his interests. Mikey had a love for music and traveled all over the country to music festivals to hear his favorite artists live.
