Mike was a multi-instrumentalist and a musician. He cherished playing baseball with his kids and working with wood. He was always prepared to take his family on an impromptu journey. He enjoyed fishing and camping. He loved German Shepherds. Mike loved laughing and making other people laugh. Most of all, he cherished time spent with, providing for, and frequently embarrassing his family.
Mike worked as a builder.
He put a lot of effort into his job and was very proud of it. He was a stickler for detail and would never accept “good enough.” His wife Donna, four children—Bryanna (Kurk) Harris, Olivia Dysinger, Ryley Hanley, and Michael Hanley Jr.—as well as grandson Hayden, are left to mourn his passing. Along with his mother Cynthia (Bob) Thompson, father Richard Hanley Sr., and siblings Richard Hanley Jr., John (Correy) Hanley, and Melissa (Ron) Wilson,
