Mike joined ABATE of South Dakota as soon as he came from Detroit, Michigan to live here. He volunteered on many occasions to help with different functions. He served as the newsletter editor for Rushmore ABATE, Sgt At Arms for Black Hills ABATE and was selected Member of the Year in 2004 with the Black Hills Chapter.
Mike was instrumental in our May Bike Awareness promos on the local TV stations. Outside of ABATE he was on the board of directors for the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum. He loved riding, believed in ABATE and though he was only with us for five short years, his time with us will always be remembered.
