He was born August 11, 1969, in Fort Worth, TX, son of Jim Heffernan, and Dan and Brenda Hughes.

Mike served in the United States Marine Corps and worked as a police officer for many years.  He loved hanging out with his daughter and spending time with his family as often as he could.  Michael enjoyed shooting guns and watching the news.  He was an MMA fighter and a bull rider (but only once in his life).  He will be remembered for being funny, loving and having a heart of gold. He was truly an honorable man.
