Michael Vincent Waytashek was born April 19, 1967 in Little Falls, MN to Vincent and Shirley (Rocheleau) Waytashek. Michael grew up in Belle Prairie Township, Morrison County, Minnesota.

He also attended St. Cloud State for a short time in the aviation program. Mike worked as a Heavy Equipment operator with the Forty Niners Union for the last 15 years working all over the Midwest. He was every one's go-to mechanic if it had a motor he could certainly figure it out! Mike was known as an untamed free spirited individual who earned the nicknames of Slider and 3 wheeler by his friends. He lived life to fullest or was it the fastest. He enjoyed riding snowmobiles with family, three wheelers and ultra-lite airplanes, smoking meats on his new smoker, spinning the wheels on his 1981 Pontiac Firebird and 1969 Dodge Charger. Mike was a member of the Sunset Riders Saddle Club and the Forty Niners Union.
