Mike worked as a carpenter for his father Jay Fagan for many years.  After his father retired, he worked for Dan Miller as a carpenter.  Mike & Dan worked together for over 20 years.  It was often said if they could not fix it or figure it out, it could not be done.

Mike "Philo" had many friends & cherished all of them.  His life could not have been any more full with friendship; however, he would never turn away from making a new friend.  He was everyone's friend.
