At Jonnet Flea Market, Mike enjoyed his “old men’s club” who visited with him on Sundays. He was injured in 1972 when he became a double amputee. He was a fighter. He always found a way to do what he wanted. He rode Segway, horses, and snowmobiles. He also enjoyed hunting and fishing and was so proud of his last Buck.
