Mike graduated from Mountain Home High School in May 1968. Then in 1970 went on to graduate from Idaho State University as an I/E technician. Mike moved to Colorado and found his first love…the Denver Broncos. Good or bad he remained a faithful fan.

Mike moved back to Boise where he met his wife Betty Van Sickle Beck and married on June 2, 1984.Their most unique wedding gift was a 4 month old baby goat named LG-lawngirl.

Mike was a hard worker and spent 18 years at FMC on the Phosphorus Dock loading train cars. He only left when FMC shut down. He tried on his student role again and went back to Idaho State University to become an LPN. Mike only had a semester left when BNFL offered him a job out at the Idaho National Laboratory. Mike worked there until he retired from Fluor on June 5, 2017.

Mike's love was his family and spending time with them whether it was camping, boating, water skiing, or just a backyard BBQ. Mike was a devoted son and loved his mother. Mike also enjoyed hunting, fishing and he was very proud of his yard and garden. He was also known to like his beer.
