Mikey loved spending time with family and friends. He was a jokester, always giving those he loved a hard time and making everyone around him smile. He loved his cars; whether it was working on them, talking about them, going to car shows, or just cruisin’. Mikey was also known for his work ethic, he worked hard every day to support his family and encouraged others to do the same. He followed in the footsteps of his grandfather, father, many uncles, and cousins in the construction field as a concrete finisher. Even when he wasn’t working his daily job, Mikey was always working on something. He was always available to help anyone who needed it, no matter what it was, he would figure out how to get the job done. Most of all, Mikey had a heart of gold; he was generous, loving, kind, and he loved his family more than anything.
