Mike was born on February 8, 1962, and grew up in Santa Fe. After high school, Mike moved to Seattle, Washington and worked his way up from an apprentice electrician to a licensed professional under the guidance of his older brother, Joe Maestas, Jr, who is a business owner & contractor (retired) in Seattle Washington.
Mike was a good man who cared for others and tried to help anytime he could. He was a loving son, brother, and friend. He loved his family and friends; and cherished the time he spent with them sharing his smile & his sense of humor.
