Born November 24, 1948 in Oakdale, CA to parents Raymond and Thelma Voorhees, Mike joined the Army National Guard in 1967. He ended his 23 years of military service in the Army at the rank of Sergeant First Class E-7. He then went to work at Central Sanitary Supply where he retired due to his illness after 20 years.
