He was employed with Needs Store, New Glasgow for 25 years. Mike possessed a happy demeanor and cheerfully greeted each customer with a smile. You knew Mike was working when the “Little Green truck” was in the parking lot. He rarely missed a shift and worked every holiday so his colleagues could spend time with their families. Mike was a collector of vinyl records, an avid computer gamer and avid fan of the old WWE. He enjoyed hanging out with his long time Trenton High School buddies and numerous friends. Mike will be missed by all who knew him and those who stopped by the Needs Store late at night to chat.
