Michael worked for The Boeing Company for 12 years as a structure mechanic; and proudly started attending Everett Community College. Michael loved cars, especially his Subaru WRX and Mazda RX7; and his Yamaha R1. He had an amazing talent working on all cars and motorcycles. Michael was tremendously skilled with computers and an avid gamer. Spending time at the top of Stevens Pass and snowboarding, brought him serenity and pure happiness in his life.

Family and friends describe Michael as having an infectious personality, a smile that lit up the room, and the best friend you could have. He was known for putting other’s first and would give the clothes off his back for someone in need. He was articulate and carried himself with the utmost genuine care for those around him.

His passing is a large loss for those who were lucky enough to know him. His laugh, humor, smile, and shear compassion for others will be greatly missed.

I love you to the moon and back my son. I miss you so very much, my heart breaks. I am so very proud of your compassion for everyone and your strong work ethics, I never heard you complain. You are blessed with this comforting laugh and smile; I was always truly envious how you looked at life.

I am so proud to have been attending college along with you, you are my hero. I always admired the outstanding talent you had with computers, wood, cars and everything in between.

I cherish the time you and I snorkeled looking for turtles and manta rays. How many sons would tolerate their mom singing “Baby Shark” over and over? You are so talented taking ordinary items and creating memories that I will always treasure. We got to spend quality time in the yard talking about the flowers. When we went agate hunting and you kept telling me “mom that’s not an agate, it’s just a rock, how many rocks are you going to pick up and take home”. You see my dear son, I will treasure those rocks and shells, because you were there with me.

I truly enjoyed being with you even when you didn’t talk, like when we went to the Harvest Full Moon Gong Bath and Meditation group. We talked about attending goat yoga, I can just hear you laughing when they crawl all over you.

Remember when you took your fries and made “fry man”?

I miss your hugs and “love you mother”. I am sending you the biggest hug of all, “Love You My Handsome Son”. You will always be with me. ❤

Living so many miles away we missed out knowing what a wonderful man you had become. So glad you made it home to see Grandma and we had the chance to reconnect. Rest In Peace.
Love you, Uncle Ron and Auntie Donna

Michael, you were my first born grandson & I will miss you dearly. I recall you coming to MN to visit grandma Helen before she passed & how much it meant to us both. Give her a hug for me. May you Rest In Peace. Love always Grandpa George

I’m deeply sadden that Michael has left us so suddenly and so young. Michael had such a kind heart, his passing has been a devastating shock to his Mom, sister and I along with everyone who knew him. I will miss working with him in the shop on our cars, going to car shows, swap meets and the drag races. I will remember the many road trips together and hanging out on the patio just taking about anything we felt like. Michael was planning on furthering his education and using his gifted talent to get into cyber security, he had a bright future ahead of him. Michael had a special knack with computers that always intrigued me. He will forever have a special place in our hearts and we were blessed with his presence on earth. He is now in Heaven surrounded by angels where all are blessed by his smile. God bless you Michael you will never be forgotten.

How do I even start to express my love and adoration for you, my baby brother?!

I have so many memories and am heartbroken we don't get to make more.

I remember we used to "drive" our red wagon like a car in the front driveway. You'd push and I'd drive. Then we'd switch. I'd push and you'd drive. I always hated being the one to push and only wanted to be the driver but we promised to share. I would lie after a few mins that it had been your full 5 minutes and it was my turn again. You'd put up a stink about it but you would give in. I regret torturing you growing up by doing mean things like this but then again... What are baby brothers for?? ❤

I'm glad that we started reconnecting as brother and sister in the last few years. We had a patch where we definitely grew apart as we are so darn independent. Your strength and genuine compassion for others was always evident no matter where we were in our lives.

We talked about going up snowboarding and having you mentor me so I could "grow up" and go beyond the bunny hill. We talked about so many things! I truly regret not making those things more priority. I will cherish the memories we did make and hold them close.

I can't express the heartache I feel but I can express the LOVE I have for you. You will ALWAYS & FOREVER be my Baby Brother. So smart, talented, strong, and handsome. I hope you found the peace you deserve. You may not be a phone call away anymore but I know you'll always be by us & watching over us.

Michael, my heart is so thankful that you were put in my life as my brother. I love you!!

I still remember the time I visited Washington over 20 years ago, and you relentlessly tormented me in the special way a 7 year old brother would to an older sister. As we grew older, we all seemed to go our separate ways and grow apart. Then, by coincidence, you showed up on Grandma's doorstep the same time I was visiting her in South Dakota just last year. You had grown into such a wonderful person. Respectful, kind, and caring, and I absolutely enjoyed our conversation. We both wanted to keep in contact and meet up again this year. I am sad that I will never get to know you like I thought we had the time to do. You have a light that will continue burning bright in our memories. You are, and will be deeply missed, cousin. Guide us in grace and dignity, and enjoy your time with all the others we have lost throughout the years until we meet again.

Dear Grandson,
Last summer the doorbell rang. There stood a young man with a baseball cap and sunglasses on holding 3 beautiful red roses. He asked me “You don’t know me, do you?” I replied no. He told me he was my grandson, Michael. He took off his cap and sunglasses and laughed so hard. Even though it was a short visit, I wouldn’t trade that time for anything. Special time laughing about a door greeting I will always remember. Thank you for making an old grandma happy. With tears, I will miss you.
Love, Grandma

We begin to remember not just
that you died, but that you lived.
And that your life gave us beautiful
lasting memories that we will
never forget. Love always, Margie

Michael you were always my favorite, but don't tell anyone else in the family that 😉🥰. We were so close when we were younger and I wish we hadn't grown apart over the years, but I hope you know that I have always loved you and always will. You had the greatest laugh and sense of humor and we always had a great time when we we're together. You will never be forgotten and always missed. RIP 😇

My deepest sympathy goes out to all of the family.
