Michael attended Monroe Public Schools.

For several years, Michael worked as a custodian for NorthStar Steel, but more than anything he valued his relationship with his family.   Michael had a special bond with his parents and sisters and brother they shared many happy memories together.

Michael also enjoyed spending time with friends and going out to eat with his neighbor quite often.   He enjoyed watching Ministry TV and spending time with his four-legged companion Serena.

Michael had an ear for music and would often jam to his favorite Rock ‘n Roll and hard rock bands, one of his favorites being UFO. Michael had a great sense of humor and he was quite the entertainer.   In his younger years, he loved to hang out with and go to concerts with his friends and he would play the “air guitar” like his life depended on it.
