"Mike" weas born in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin on May 9, 1878 and accepted responsibility for helping his mother at the age of seventeen after his father died.

Mike studied by correspondence with the University of Nebraska for certification to t4each elementary school, though his formal education had been limited to about three years. He did gain certification with high percentages, and was teaching in Horace when he met Ruby Owen as his student..

The children of Michael and Ruby were educated variously at Greeley Public and Sacred Heart schools, the six youngest graduating from Sacred Heart High School. While marriages of Mary, Gladys, Jean, Harley, Sheila and Shirley took place in Sacred Heart parish, only one son, John, lived a significant part of his adult life in Greeley.
