Mike worked as a Certified Automotive Mechanic for 20+ years. He was a Service Manager at Raben Tire and Shelby Wheel and Tire, and a Maintenance Engineer at Colonial Bakery.

In addition to his parents, Mike was preceded in death by stepfather, Sonny Saalwaechter; niece, Misty English; and granddaughter, Hannah Pharr.
