Mike then transitioned to the United States Air Force as a Cyber Security specialist contractor with Mantech and later converted to a civilian position. Mike worked at NORAD in Colorado Springs and the Pentagon in Arlington and Crystal City, Virginia working for Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI) Special Projects (PJ). After retirement, Mike and Laney settled in Kimball Township to be closer to their children and grandchildren.

Mike is survived by his wife of 22 years, Laney Little, his four step children and their spouses, Shawn Mitchell (Darian), Ryan Jones (Karen), Kate Golembiewski (Matt), and Elizabeth Chung (Anthony); 9 grandchildren, Tristin, Alyssa, Mycala, Thomas, Kennedy, Walter, Micheal, Gabriel, and Adeline; one great-granddaughter, Everly; siblings, Ed Little (Nelda), Sheila Powell (Gene), Guy Little (Shelley); and several nieces and nephews.
