He was an ex­tremely de­voted fam­ily man and mar­ried to his high school sweet­heart and best friend, Patty, for 21 years. His chil­dren were his ab­so­lute pride and joy. There was noth­ing in life that gave him greater plea­sure and pride than see­ing his sons and daugh­ter ex­cel in every­thing they did. He loved coach­ing T-Ball and base­ball with Ch­e­sa­peake City Lit­tle League and coach­ing soc­cer for his sons, Michael and Con­ner. He cher­ished all the Fa­ther-Daugh­ter dances he at­tended with his daugh­ter, Carissa, and beamed with pride when she danced at recitals. He never missed a sports game, a pi­ano recital, or dance recital for his chil­dren. He was a true Amer­i­can pa­triot al­ways teach­ing his chil­dren right from wrong and how to put God and fam­ily first. He took great pride in al­ways help­ing oth­ers and ded­i­cated his life to ser­vice in any way he could.

Mike had a pas­sion for build­ing and fix­ing things. He had an eye for de­tail and al­ways wanted his work to be per­fect. He loved liv­ing in the country and was so proud of the home he built for his fam­ily in Mary­land. He showed this work ethic and used th­ese skills as a home builder while work­ing for K. Wolf Cus­tom Homes, Best­field Homes, and even­tu­ally his own home­build­ing busi­ness.

He is sur­vived by his lov­ing wife, Pa­tri­cia; his sons, Michael and Con­ner; his daugh­ter, Carissa; his mother, Rose­mary P. Bolin­ski; his sis­ter, Lisa M. An­der­son; his fa­ther and mother in law, Joseph and Pa­tri­cia Hoopes; and his nu­mer­ous aunts, un­cles, and cousins — all hold­ing a spe­cial place in his heart. He was pre­ceded in death by his fa­ther, Al­fred G. Bolin­ski; and an in­fant son.
