Mike was a dedicated husband and father, and an amazing son and friend. He enjoyed playing and watching basketball – his all-time favorite basketball player was Kobe Bryant. Mike was proud to be an Angeleno. As he would often say, “I’m LA-everything” – LA Lakers, Clippers, Rams, USC and LAFD. He looked forward to coaching his son’s sports teams and spending “Saturday Fun-day” with his wife and kids. Mike was loving and charismatic. He always wore a smile on his face and made people laugh. To know him was to love him!
