He married Suni Lyn Geyer, November 2, 1996; they lived in Fair Oaks, CA. Member of the LDS Church.Mike loved his wife, his son, Canyon - the light of his life, his family, friends, and dog, Mikeala. Mike's charm and heart of gold drew people to him. He passionately loved nature and living on the edge. His free spirit soared while snowboarding, heli-boarding in Alaska, kayaking, and motorcycling.

He taught us many lessons and will be greatly missed by all whose lives he touched with his love, compassion and zest for life.
