Born in Chicago, IL on February 3, 1935 Mike spent most of his childhood summers at Bowen Country Club, as a camper, counselor, Kitchen Staffer and one of their biggest supporters. Bowen is where Mike would meet many of his life-long friends, and the woman who would become his wife of 61 years and the love of his life.

In 1963 Mike and his partner established a successful printing company Tukaiz Litho from which he retired in 1997. In his retirement, Michael worked at St. Charles Bowl where he was known to many as “coach Mike” a moniker he earned earlier in life coaching many children in softball and baseball. He also spent several years greeting the fans of the Kane County Cougars.
