MICHAEL JON STAPLES, born February 9, 1997 in San Francisco, California to Jon and Amy Wagner Staples, passed away suddenly on September 24, 2016. For the nineteen years he was with us, Michael was the greatest gift his family ever received. He was completely immersed in his family, friends, and the local hockey community. Michael was a dedicated teammate, genuine friend, irreplaceable brother, and beloved son. Although he was summoned to our Lord at such a young age, the effects of his unbelievable ability to connect with others will remain with us forever. His random thought process and infectious smile will be so missed. Michael was a warrior. He graduated from Coppell High School in Coppell, Texas in 2015. Michael continued his education at North Lake Community College and began his sophomore year in the fall of 2016.

Our love and support to the Staples family. Michael was like family to us. We loved having him come over with Matt and just chill with the girls. It was always fun having them all together. We miss him so much, but now he is happy in his Mother's loving arms. Michael, you will always be in our hearts. With love The Carrington girls (plus Aunts and Grandma).
