Mike was born November 8, 1953, to Vincent and Amy Donahoe in Napoleon, Ohio. He graduated from Chatfield High School in 1971, then served in the US Army. He attended college studying auto mechanics and business.

Mike married Rebecca Peterson, they later divorced. On August 26, 1989 he married Kimberly Rae Winter. They resided in Rochester, Stewartville, and Chatfield. Mike was the owner/operator of PPMI Motorsports for twenty years. Mike had a passion for race car driving and vehicle restoration. He was an avid camper, hunter, and fisherman who introduced his children to these hobbies, which they enjoyed together for many years.
