In 1974 he married the love of his life, Judy Worsham, and began their 48-year journey together. He never met a stranger and had a servant’s heart, always willing to help anyone in need. People in the community knew “Mike” as a photographer, electrician, and all-around handy man. He loved his family and friends immensely and always went out of his way to make their lives easier. Mike was an avid collector of many things and was always ready to show his treasures to anyone that would come visit. He had a life full of adventures, laughter and was ready to share a story about his experiences. He was also a dedicated member of Mountain Home Baptist Church. Mike was a loving husband, father, son, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend who will be missed dearly by all his loving family and friends.
