Michael loved everything nautical and his favorite vacation spot was on the beach in the Florida Keys. He absolutely loved dolphins and any form of sea life, spending a lot of time snorkling on his vacations. 

Being an intelligent man with a lot to offer, but he didn't have the gift of chatter.  Although he was quiet he loved his family without limits.  He knew how to lay down the law and show how much he loved you at the same time.

This beautiful soul was known as husband, daddy, father, grandfather, uncle and brother.  He was my best friend, love, partner, and companion. Words or titles will never fill  the void that has been left by his parting, but faith tells us we will all be together again.
