He also was a devoted friend to all he met during his lifetime and, especially, in his last years. Michael served as a Private ET in the U.S. Army till 1972. Michael will be remembered for his robust and spirited personality. He enjoyed waking early to have coffee on his front porch, watching the beach walkers and runners, and listening to the sounds of the ocean waves. He looked forward to springtime and the planting of his tomato plants so that he could make gravy. He is remembered as kind, with a willingness to strike up a conversation with everyone. He often told others how he leaned on his faith and was thankful for the opportunities he’d had. He was happy in his last days, loving family and friends, surrounded by goodness.
