Mike was a man of great curiosity and many diverse interests cultivated in a life-long pursuit of ever changing hobbies. Never one to undertake anything in half measures, he was a voracious reader, an avid gardener, a greatly skilled photographer, a lover of music, and a determined but less than accomplished classical guitarist. He loved travel with family, scuba diving, ballroom dancing, cross country skiing, competitive cycling as the Patriarch of the ‘Kaiser Dynasty’, and served on the Board of Directors of the Lehigh County Velodrome in the 1980’s. He did not shy away from wine, Nancy’s expert cooking, a fine cigar, or a good argument. He was perhaps happiest in his role as grandfather, and reveled in playing Uno and creating elaborate ice cream sundaes with Molly. Mike and Nancy were blessed to have many dear friends with whom they maintained life-long relationships from their home in Cetronia.
