He was 55. Mike was born in Sanford, Florida on April 18, 1961 to the Navy family of James and Loretta DallaRosa. He grew up in Daytona Beach and graduated in 1979 from Spruce Creek High School. Following graduation, Mike joined Port Orange Fire Rescue as a firefighter paramedic. He soon rose to the level of Commander. Pursuing his lifelong dream of law enforcement, Mike was sworn into the Florida Marine Patrol as an officer in 1992.
