He was a creative individual that enjoyed art and was a skilled guitarist. Michael was a basketball and football fan and loved keeping in touch with friends through online messaging and gaming. His favorite times were sharing a meal of filet mignon with boxed mac and cheese with family and friends, cheering on the Patriots and Celtics, regaling everyone around with a funny story, and listening to, playing and watching 70’s-80’s music. Michael was known for kindness and faithful friendship and will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
