Mike was never one to sit around. He often could be found tinkering with his tractors or making 'improvements' around the house or fixing the many lamps people would drop off. His many puzzles of trains and birds required him to learn how to build picture frames. Mike found a way to take favorite bird puzzle and frame it as headboard for his bed. He could also be found helping family and friends tackle various home projects. 'Poppa' took great pride in showing his children, grandchildren and his great-grandchildren how to use tools correctly to create their own special projects.
