A Short Bio To The Inspiring Life Of Mike Holmes

Mike Holmes was born as Michael James Holmes to mother Shirley and father Jim Holmes on August 3, 1963, in Halton Hills, Ontario, Canada. He was the middle child of three children of his parents. Growing in a poor but content family, Mike inhibited his ethic of life “doing things right the first time” from his parents.

His father Jim was a licensed plumber employed with General Motors as an engineer, who also happened to be a “jack of all trades, master of none.” He followed his father’s footsteps and developed a prominent interest in skilled trades and developed a natural proficiency in craftsmanship.

Under his Father’s supervision, he started mastering electrical works, plumbing, and skilled trade from the age of 6. His mother, on the other hand, taught him sex education at the time when it was considered a taboo. He dropped out his school in grade 11, unable or unwilling to handle the pressure of school as his pure passion was building and renovation.
