Mike emigrated from Ireland to the United States in 1957 and settled in the Fordham area of the Bronx, NY, with his brother Sean and sister Nancy. A few years after arriving in the U.S., Mike met the love of his life, Maureen O’Toole, a Brooklyn girl. They married on April 28, 1962 and lived in the Bronx for eight years where four of their five children were born. Mike became a U.S. citizen in 1963. He was a proud graduate of Fordham University which he attended in the evenings, studying accounting and graduating with a BS degree in June 1970. The family moved to Freehold, NJ in 1970 and became members of St. Rose of Lima Parish. Mike served on the St. Rose Finance Committee and as a Parish Trustee.

Mike enjoyed summer vacations in Bolton Landing on Lake George with his wife Maureen and their family. In 2002, they became summer residents of Cape Cod Village in Hague, NY on an especially scenic and beautiful part of Lake George.
