After attending college Mike worked in the chemical industry before finding his calling in Law Enforcement. Mike retired from Bastrop County Sheriff’s Department after 40 years in Law Enforcement. Mike served honorably not only at Bastrop County but also Richwood, Clute, Jacksonville, and Cherokee County, Texas. As a Criminal Investigator Mike solved many crimes, some gaining him national notoriety. Never tiring, Mike also had several proprietary businesses throughout his lifetime. He worked hard for his family, friends, and the community. He was devoted to his daughters and his grandchildren. Mike was a loving husband to his wife Sheryl whom he adored. He was always a jovial person with a smile on his face and a good joke or story to tell. If you were a friend of Mike then you were inclusive as family in all aspects of his life. He was forever loyal to those he knew and loved.

Revelations 7:15-17

15 Therefore, “they are before the throne of God and serve Him day and night in His temple; and He who sits on the throne will shelter them with His presence. 16 ‘Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat down on them, ‘nor any scorching heat. 17 For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘He will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’ ”
