Michael had a passion for life and a deep hunger to serve and know the Lord. Together with his wife Lisa, he cherished time with family. He was thrilled to be a father, uncle, and grandfather or “Baka”. He had many fond moments of grilling out for family gatherings and spending time with his grandchildren. Michael will be remembered for the way he embraced life, by taking vacations, traveling with his family and friends, growing in his faith, and sharing that faith with others. Being a life-long learner, he found great pleasure in reading. He embodied great joy and was quick with humor and playfulness. He held a deep appreciation for music, playing guitar and bass, was the former lead vocalist of Sludge Head. The way he lived his life so intentionally has touched many and left lasting imprints on those who loved him.
