A beloved husband to the late Gloria (nee Kaman); A devoted father of the late Patricia, Michael, Pamela, Amy, and Michelle. Michael was blessed with many grandkids and great-grandkids who he adored so much.

Michael was a well-known gentleman in his neighborhood. Neighbors and neighborhood kids loved Michael and watched out for him. Michael would buy candy for all the kids in his neighborhood. This eventually led to Michael being known as the “The Candy Man.” Michael lived up to the phrase “Buffalo, the city of good Neighbors.” in true Buffalonian fashion, he was a good neighbor and a huge loyal fan of his favorite boys in Red, White, and Blue, The Buffalo Bills.

When Michael wasn’t passing out candy to the neighborhood kids or supporting his Buffalo Bills, He spent his time outdoors. Michael enjoyed going fishing and Hunting. Michael was also a longtime Biron City Rod and Gun Club member.

Michael was a retired bricklayer for Republic Steel. As a bricklayer, Michael would line all the blast furnaces. It was no surprise that Michael loved the heat and preferred the summer months, mostly so he could indulge in his favorite hobby, gardening. Any chance Michael had; you could find him in the sun working in his garden. Michael was a great gardener, and his specialty was growing vegetables.
