Born in Chickasha, OK to the late Travis Willard and Wilma Jeanne Griffin on April 22, 1951, he earned both a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Chemistry from Texas Tech University where he was also a national merit scholar. He worked as a chemist for Hughes Aircraft, Texas Instruments and the Department of Defense. Mike enjoyed studying military history, especially World War II, genealogy, mineralogy and metallurgy.
