Michael worked as a Customer Service Manager for two years, but he was also a self-produced artist, who enjoyed writing and recording music, hosting events, and mentoring potential artist in the Phoenix community. Anyone that knew Michael, knew he treated everyone as if they were family. He was a philomath, a lover of knowledge and facts, and was always a great conversationalist. Michael was a proud Arizonian, made sure everyone knew he was a Cardinals, Diamondbacks, and Sun Devils fan!
Michael met Candice Mary, his partner, five years ago. They shared a love of family, friends, and music.

A POEM IN REMEMBRANCE....
The day that God called your name
It broke my heart in two
But Heaven needed an Angel
And the one he picked was you
I just wish he could have waited
And let you stay with me
But you have left memories in my heart
And that's where they'll always be
I just wish I could rewind the clock
Or make it turn real slow
I could have hugged you one more time
Before you had to go
No matter how much time will pass
I'll miss you everyday
Keep shining bright in Heaven
So you can light my way
