Michael was one of the kindest and thoughtful men you could meet. He was a devoted husband, father, and friend. He touched a lot of people’s lives with his wisdom.

As his friends called him “yeah, but” he loved talking your ear off and telling you how it was. Michael will be greatly missed by many. His strength, kindness, and loyalty will be carried on through his family.
