Michael was a graduate of Botkins High School. Michael loved basketball and coached at Holy Angels and Lehman Catholic High School for 17 years. He also announced games at Lehman and on the local radio station. Michael had an incredibly generous heart. He ushered at Holy Angels Catholic Church and served on the parish council. He genuinely cared for others. It was not uncommon to see him plowing his neighbors’ driveways after a snowstorm or giving a fresh coat of paint to the church pillars. He volunteered his vocal talents to several Charity League shows and other fundraisers. Michael was a born entertainer, both off and on the stage. He was a very talented singer and sang for countless weddings, funerals, and shows. His karaoke skills were the life of the party, and he loved to make people laugh. He never knew a stranger, and he was a very loyal friend. Michael was a dedicated family man and will be missed greatly by his family and friends. He loved his girls deeply, and he considered himself blessed beyond measure to have the love of his life, Terri, by his side.
