He recently purchased a new house to be closer to his mother and family.
Michael was married for 32 years to his wife Karen and together they have 2 wonderful sons of whom he was extremely proud of. Some of his favorite memories were from the family’s vacations on Cape Cod. Mike loved animals and had many pets over his life including dogs, cats, fish, frogs, lizards, insects, turtles, snakes, and an alligator.
