As a child, Michael was a people person who loved cars, cartoon characters, and drawing; so much so, he once painted Brenda green! As a boy, Michael was small but mighty! His family remembers the time when Michael played youth football for Red Shield, and they played against the PAL Knights. These boys were BIG but Michael being smaller in size, didn’t stop him from dominating on the field, he put those boys to shame.
Michael matriculated through the Denver Public School system and was a proud Manual High School Thunderbolt. After high school, Michael went straight to work. His most recent profession was as the Custodial Supervisor at Arapahoe Park in Denver. Michael was a hard worker and did everything with excellence. His co-workers spoke highly of his patience, fairness, and caring nature.
Michael accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at an early age and was a member of Agape Christian Church for more than 50 years. Michael enjoyed singing, listening to music, drawing pictures of cars, cartoon characters, and people. He also enjoed playing basketball with his best friend Michael A. Mosley. His genuine spirit will be missed by all those who had the pleasure of crossing his path.
