Born in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, and raised in Toms River, New Jersey, he graduated from Toms River High School North. He was a proud member of the United States Air Force. He went on to work in the restaurant business for many years and has spent the last 16 years proudly working for Delta Airlines. Michael was a member of the NCOA and in his spare time, he enjoyed taking care of his animals, gardening, playing many hours of Madden Football and listening to music. Michael was a proud husband and father and loved spending time with his family and friends. Michael was the most patriotic person and stood up for his Country proudly. Michael never met a stranger and loved to help anyone he could, he loved to make people laugh no matter where he was.
