Mike was born June 13, 1947 in McCook to Harry M. and Golda L. (Roller) Zwickle. He was one of three siblings who grew up in McCook, graduating from McCook High School with the Class of 1965.

Mike was preceded in death by his parents; his brother, Gary Zwickle; his sister, Diane Meissner; and a great niece, Allysha Fischer.
