Mike thoroughly enjoyed the bi-annual Largent reunions often taking his vacation to attend them driving sometimes the farthest and often arriving a day early and leaving the day after they were over. He enjoyed getting the youngsters of the family out of bed in the morning, ringing the dinner bell loudly, starting "food fights", and encouraging everyone to have a good time.
