Michael was a 1995 graduate of Bellefonte High School. He went on to attend and graduate from Steven’s Tech with his associate degree in auto body and collision repair. He worked his whole life for The Pennsylvania State University.

He liked to spend time riding motorcycles, tinkering with cars (classic and late model), remodeling his homes, and he enjoyed dogs-especially his Zoey and Ziggy. He was also a member of the Bellefonte Elks Lodge BPOE #1094. He loved being outside, drinking good beer and making others laugh.
