Mike graduated from Princeton High School in Princeton, Missouri. He worked at General Motors in Kansas City, Missouri, right after high school, for a short time, before beginning his career with Hy-Vee, Inc. Mike started his Hy-Vee career with humble beginnings as a meat wrapper in the Oskaloosa, Iowa, store in 1957. Mike had an extremely strong work ethic and elevated himself throughout his career as he strived for perfection from a full-time meat wrapper to Vice President of Meat Operations for the Hy-Vee Corporation. He was a great mentor to so many people and friends over the years. Mike retired from Hy-Vee after 43 years of dedication and loyal service.

Mike loved fishing in northern Minnesota and he and his family spent many, many vacations there and made many memories enjoying the great up north. He loved duck hunting, golfing, and camping, too.
