He was an avid sports fan and enjoyed playing baseball and football during his high school years. As an adult he enjoyed golfing, pool, and bowling. Michael shared a love with his mother for the News York Yankees. Michael had the most beautiful, soulful voice and he was not bashful to share it with the world. It was a regular occurrence to see Mike, microphone in hand, belting out a song and dancing at Karaoke. He loved music, a good beer, and a smoke. Mike loved to read, do crossword puzzles, feed the humming birds outside his apartment, play and love on his dog, smell pretty flowers, reminisce about the "old days,” and spending time with his family. Mike was very intelligent and loved answering all the questions on jeopardy and took great pride to help his daughter with all her homework while she was attending college. Michael had a very kind heart. He had a great sense of humor, was amazingly sarcastic, was sensitive and tough, was compassionate and understanding, and was the perfect mixture of all the characteristics in the world that make people great. He was a great man and his memory and legacy will live on forever. He will be thought about and missed daily. He was for sure the glue that held the family together. Sing loud and throw the ball with the angels. Until we meet again we love you always!
