His greatest pleasure was spending time with his family and friends.  He enjoyed trips to the beach and to the mountains of West Virginia.  The game of golf was his favorite pastime, playing with his brothers and friends.  He also enjoyed playing pool with his son, Antonio, in a couple of different leagues.  He also made trips to Las Vegas to play in the APA annual tournament.  Mike loved WVU football and basketball, Alabama Crimson Tide football, and Kentucky basketball.  When his sons were in high school, he spent many hours at band competitions with Antonio and cross country and track meets with Tanner.
