Michael truly loved his children, was a proud father and he often bragged on their accomplishments. He liked storytelling and just spending time with them.

Michael was also real close to his sister, Donna, who brought him lots of his favorite foods and goodies and his brother, Sam, who helped him walk again after experiencing some medical problems.

Michael was a diehard MSU fan who was loyal to the bulldogs. He lived and breathed Mississippi State and enjoyed watching any sport played by his team.
