Mike grew up in a small town in northern Ontario where hockey was the cornerstone of the community during the winter months. As almost every school had an outdoor rink, Mike was able to spend countless hours on the ice. Mike played minor hockey in his home town for several years before moving away to the west coast at age 19. Although hockey was a huge part of the community Mike also enjoyed other sports and activities such as baseball during the summers and camping. He was involved in many school sports such as track and field, volleyball, basketball, the wrestling team to name a few. Mike was also involved with army cadets where discipline and team work were a requirement.
After coming to the west coast, Mike was involved in youth programs working with street kids, and as a foster parent for 10 + years. His hockey playing took a back seat to his involvement in these activities as well as his involvement coaching MMHA Atom and Peewee house and rep teams. Following coaching, Mike became the Peewee division manager. After minor hockey, Mike was part of the founding group and President of the Mission Minor Roller Hockey Association as well as coaching a team in the association.
