Michael was a wonderful uncle to his niece Maci Jo Hanes and his nephews, Micah Paul Rodriguez, and Mathew Rosas Jr. (MJ). Michael leaves behind all his wonderful cousins, who were all raised like brothers and sisters with him. Michael never met a stranger who didn’t immediately like him. Michael was a sweet, kind, considerate, respectful and a very loving person, who always strived to help other people, make them laugh, and always feel included. Every time he entered a room, Michael’s smile would light it up. Michael will be missed by everyone who ever had the opportunity to cross paths in his life. His love and light will shine on brightly forever, and his memory will live in our hearts and minds, until we meet again.
