Mike has worn many different “hats” in Ocean Shores. He may be seen putting up American flags for the OS Kiwanis Club or as the photographer at an event like the United Way or City function. He recently “retired”, after 30 years with the OS Fire Department, as the Vol. Assistant Chief - but he still frequents the station and participates with the Firefighters Association. When the weather allows, you may also see and talk with him as he rides one of his bicycles around the area. Prior to joining the agency in 1980, Mike earned a business degree at UW while driving buses and trucks to pay for tuition (both helpful when driving OSFD fire equipment). Mike and Diana have three children who now live in the Seattle/Tacoma area.
