He married the love of his life and the yin to his yang Angela “Angie” (Bolaños) Byrne on May 21, 1983 after dating for 2 years. He was an active and engaged father to his three children and raised them in Warren Township on the eastside of Indianapolis.

Mike enjoyed woodworking, golf, classic rock music, a good Napa Valley wine, and spending time with his beloved wife and family. A generous and loving spirit, Mike donated a large amount of his time to others through his talents of woodworking and do-it-yourself projects. He had a charming and lively way about him and was always available for a bear hug. Mike’s laughter was boisterous and he loved to tell stories from throughout his life. Mike liked to keep busy and he started a side business called Legacy Engineering and Manufacturing, LLC to be a further expression of his craftsmanship. This allowed him to work alongside his son.
