First and foremost, Micheal was a warrior of God and if you stopped to talk to him you were sure to hear the Word of the Lord. He understood the struggles people face and kept many in his thoughts and prayers. He had a passion for the outdoors and loved to travel to the mountains. He particularly loved Yellow Stone Park and the state of Alaska. He loved looking at old maps, going fishing, hunting, and spending precious time with his family. His favorite place to be was around the table with his family. His solid example of faith, love, and kindness will be missed by all the lives he touched.
