Mike proudly served his country in the United States Army during the Vietnam War. He dedicated his career to the heating and cooling industry for more than 40 years as the owner and operator of Kappa Heating and Air Conditioning. Many of his clients became lifelong friends as he created a genuine and trustworthy relationship with his clients.
Mike was a muscle car enthusiast. He was a lifetime and founding member of the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The Chevy Nova and Corvette were his favorites. He attended car shows as often as he could, even bringing his family along with him.
His family was his world, especially his six grandchildren. He and his wife Patti, married since 1977, built a beautiful life together and shared years of memories with their loving family. Mike was always kind and gentle, he never met a stranger and was always eager to help anyone in need. He was loving and caring; if you knew him, you loved him, and he loved you back.
