Miguel Antonio Santino Gonzales, age 31, left us unexpectedly on September 9, 2021. He was born in Waukesha on January 29, 1990. He studied and taught martial arts and attained his 1st degree blackbelt in both taekwondo and combat hapkido at a young age and was a member of the Boy Scouts for many years. Miguel was on the wrestling team and graduated from Waukesha South High School. Following graduation, he immediately left for Germany and spent 18 months there on an adventure, traveling all over Europe and learning culinary skills, which he continued to study at MATC when he returned to the US. He moved to Washington State for 10 years, made many good friends and had many more adventures. He enjoyed multiple interests and researched each one extensively. He loved science, horseback riding, hiking, rock collecting, meeting new friends, and helping everyone who asked.
Miguel will be greatly missed by his mother, Maria S. Gonzales; father, John Sheridan and brother, Roman (Shanna) Torres. He is further survived by several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephew, great nephew, his godson Odin, his beloved cats Loki and Thor, and his many friends in Germany, Washington State and Wisconsin.
