Mike grew up in the Biggersville Community and was a graduate of Biggersville High School. After graduation, he honorably served his country in the United States Marine Corp. He worked as a machinist and later a lead man at Leroy Summer while in Tennessee. In 2010, Mike returned to MS where he enjoyed horses, coon hunting and several other interests. He was a talented mechanic and earlier in life he enjoyed drag racing. Mike had just recently married his soulmate, Becky Fussell. Their time together was nothing short of a fairy tale marriage. Together, they loved to ride motorcycles, recently completing several cross country trips. Mike was proud to have recently joined the Christian Motorcyclist Association. Mike lived life to its fullest, embracing each day and leaving his smile imprinted on the minds of all who knew and loved him. He was a member of Bethany Church of God of Prophecy, recently attending East Amory Baptist Church.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by a sister, Carolyn Kay Bivens.

I am glad I got to meet Michael before he was taken from you. I didn't have time to get to know him, but I could see the love between you two in the short minutes we were together at Charles' burial. The sudden passing of Michael makes us aware that we need to make each day count for the Lord if we are His child; and if we aren't then we need to get prepared for we do not know when our time to leave this earth will come and we need to be ready to meet the Lord. Praying for you all as you go through this difficult time. May God strengthen you all and Becky, may you know the peace that only God can give.
