Michael was an active member of both the International Union of Operating Engineers and the Arizona Laborers and Teamsters for over 30 years. He was dedicated to the craft of his electrical profession in the construction industry. Michael was a hardworking individual and team player. He was everyone’s “go to guy” for just about anything you asked of him.
Michael loved the outdoors especially hunting, fishing, and camping with his family and close buddies. Mike was most at peace spending time alone in nature.
Michael was a loving father, loyal brother, devoted friend to everyone, and a respected coworker. He genuinely loved helping others. Michael had an infectious laugh, a beautiful smile, and most conversations ended with laughter.
He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. He will live in our hearts forever.
