Michael could be described as a larger-than-life character, always looking to be the center of attention. He was extremely musically gifted. With a lifelong passion for reading and writing his own music, playing keyboards and with his amazing melodic karaoke place was safe when he entered. But then he loved to sing for anyone, at any place, at any time. Every place he went was his stage and all around him were his audience.

He was a gentle soul who loved his family with all his heart. Quick to smile, quick to laugh and quicker even with "I love you" to all his family and friends, and will be greatly missed.
