Michael was such a handsome man, loving husband, and terrific father. He was taken too soon at 42 years of age, however, he left an imprint on everyone he met. Michael always took the time to talk to anyone and everyone he came into contact with, dropping everything to lend a hand to a friend or anyone who needed him. Michael was a wonderful husband who complimented his wide daily, and made everyday count. He was grinning with pride at any event, sports event or hockey game that his son Grant attended or played in. Michael and Grant were inseparable and loved spending time throwing the football, playing catch, shooting pucks, watching sports, riding bikes, or watching movies or sports on tv. He carved a wonderful image of what a husband and father should look like. He was star-struck daily when it came to his :little princess” Emma, for she held a special spot in his heart, he will be forever missed, but never forgotten.
