Tragically, Mike’s family was there when the accident happened. With the family, the rider lived in Superior, Nebraska.

It is believed that Mike was married to Debra Sanchez Walker and shared three kids with her. Like her husband, Debra is a riding enthusiast, having shared a few pictures of her with her Harley Davidson.

Mike wasn’t very active on social media, so he rarely gave a glimpse of his family life. But in June 2022, he shared a picture of him and his three sons on their bikes.
