During his career, Mike flew the carrier-based A-6 Intruder and the land-based EP-3
Aries II, served on Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean, and posted to Iraq with the
Army’s 2nd Stryker Calvary Regiment in 2007. The family has lived in Florida, Virginia, Nevada,
Spain, and Maine, but has called Memphis home since Mike’s transfer to Millington
in 2002. Their daughter Christine, a sophomore at the University of Memphis, is a
3rd generation Tiger. Son Sean, 17, attends Christian Brother’s High School. Elizabeth
is a middle school teacher at Snowden School.
Mike and Elizabeth are both Life Members of the U of M Alumni Association. In addition,
living as they do along the “paw print trail” on Central Avenue, they are season football
season ticket holders and are excited to see what Coach Fuentes will bring to the
upcoming football season.
