Mike Heck is the cool and calm husband of Frankie. Mike, a manager at the local quarry, is a guy of few words and a no-nonsense approach. Mike certainly doesn't like to open up and talk about feelings or emotions. Mike enjoys the usual male interests: sports and beer.
Mike is the more frugal parent and frequently has to keep an eye on the budget. During Mike's time off from the quarry, he realised he is not cut out for being a stay at home dad. Mike struggled to find another job in a world where people must play "the game". Mike is more of a say what you mean, mean what you say kind of guy.
Mike is dedicated and supportive husband who always has his wife's back. Mike always seems to come through for Frankie just when she most needs it.
