He was born February 1, 1957, in Columbus, to the late Hayward L. Daniels and Lois “Rice” Smith. Mike attended Westerville High School and went on to serve his country in the United States Marine Corp. He married the love of his life, Brenda M. Wells, in 1987.
Mike enjoyed Fantasy Football and playing online Pogo games. An avid Cowboys and OSU Buckeyes football fan, Mike loved watching his grandchildren’s sporting events. A family man, he was happiest spending time with his children and grandchildren.
