Michael graduated from Stillwater HS in 1972, where he was a member of the Varsity Wrestling and Track and Field teams. He attended State University of New York at Delhi where he studied business. He worked for General Electric-Momentive in Waterford, NY. Due to his unique technical skills, the GE-Momentive management team would take Michael to other plants throughout the world for his professional expertise and advice - Michael was able to visit Japan, Germany as well as other far away places. Michael immensely loved and enjoyed his family first and foremost and would spend hours in the kitchen preparing feasts for them on special holidays, from appetizers to entrees to spectacular desserts. His sense of humor and Irish wit were exceptional, as he always had the talent of telling the perfect joke.
