Michael worked hard and was devoted to his family. He was a loving husband, daddy. and grandpa. Michael inherited a love for cooking from his granny, mom, and dad. His daughters took advantage of this and asked him to cook during holidays. He was always happy to comply. Mike loved to read and passed that love onto his daughters. He liked to watch old reruns on TV. He was quiet except for his quirky, loud barky laugh…when he laughed, you definitely knew that Michael was in the building!
