While we are deeply sorry about the circumstances, we want you to know that our hearts go out to you as we share this news with you.
Mike and his family relocated to Orange County, California, when he was ten years old. This event signified the beginning of Mike’s life in that area of the country. After finishing high school, he went on to become a piping engineer; however, when he was 32 years old, he made the decision to become a firefighter, primarily as a result of the influence of his uncle John. He began his professional life as a piping engineer. After completing his high school education, he went on to begin a successful career in the piping engineering industry.
Mike started working for the government for the first time in 1997 when he became a paid call firefighter for the Orange County Fire Department. This marked the beginning of his work in the public sector as a civil servant. Over the course of the last quarter of a century, he has been serving in this role. After that, in the year 2000, he started working as a firefighter on a permanent basis. He has been in the profession ever since.
His most recent position was that of Engineer, which he held at Fire Station 30 in Dana Point. He was promoted to that position in the year 2006, and he has been there ever since.

Because he had such a significant influence on the people he worked with and the communities he served, he will forever have a unique and significant place in the hearts of those people.
