Michael grew up in Big Bend. He graduated from Mukwonago Union High in Mukwonago in 1967. During high school, he received many awards for cross country and track, including state champ and all-conference. He worked hard all his life to provide for his family and retired a few years ago to enjoy life in Wild Rose. Michael was a social man with a big heart who would always lend hand to anyone in need.
