He graduated from Parma High School and then enrolled at the University of Michigan to become a pharmacist like his Uncle Merrimen. After his father had become ill, Mike returned home to take over the family farm. Mike worked for Standard Oil, Blue Surf, and at Burr Oak Golf Course, while also farming and woodworking. He enjoyed spending time at his cabin up north and at Parma Cafe, where he met friends for coffee in the morning and tea at 2 o’clock in the afternoon.
