Michael attended school at Pine Ridge and Wolf Creek Elementary where he graduated the 8th grade. He attended high school at Little Wound and completed at Pine Ridge where he received his High School Diploma with the Class of 2003.
Michael was a family man who enjoyed fishing. To him it wasn’t just a sport, it was a way of life, and it was bonding time with his family. The love within our family while growing up was strong and deep, Micheal left us with so many memories to treasure and keep. He was a humble man, he was a cancer survivor. Micheal was a kind man who helped from his heart and genuinely cared about others.
Micheal was a big sports fan. He loved the Broncos. Win or lose, he was representing the blue and orange.
And to say he was a North Carolina Tarheels fan would be an understatement. Especially when they played against their rivalry Duke. Michael would be right there cheering on his team.
Michael will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
