Michael dedicated his life to helping others.

As a World War II veteran, Michael also volunteered for Honor Flight Rochester. A devout Catholic, Michael was President of Commandery #308 of the Knights of St. John and head usher for Our Mother of Sorrows Church for over 50 years. He was the last surviving member of the Twelve Apostles, a group of friends who had grown up together on the East side of Rochester during the depression. Michael dedicated his life to kindness and love both to his family and to anyone he had the pleasure of meeting.
