If you are reading this obituary, it means that I’ve passed away. In planning for the last story of my life, I knew that I would need to live an active, interesting and meaningful life so you wouldn’t be bored. I hope you aren’t disappointed.

I’ll start it with “WOW what a ride!” I was born in St. Joseph, Missouri to Amy Bigley and Jon Cornell. After high school I worked in restaurants, a little of pipe insulation and also a painter. Just trying to find my way.

I enjoyed hanging out with all of my friends, riding motorcycles and driving fast cars. It’s a bummer I died from a motorcycle crash. There were so many thrill seeking, adrenaline pumping adventures where I thought I was going to die, but didn’t. Such as the thousands of miles that I logged as I crissed and crossed the roads.

I recruited a partner in crime, Sydney Harper, she bandaged and helped me take care of myself until the next crazy pursuit of excitement together. We enjoyed so many crazy things.

I am preceded in death by my mother Amy Bigley, my sister Haley Bigley, my Grandma and Grandpa Cornell. Survived by my dad Jon Cornell, Grandma Beverly, Grandpa Warner, my Uncle Bobby and his wife Ashlee, Uncle Robby Bigley, Aunt Deidra and her husband David, Aunt Cynthia and her husband Erik, Aunt Kelly Worthen, Aunt Tasha Pruned and a host of many cousins, family and friends.

I am the most interesting man in the world, stay adventurous my friends!

And so… now I am on to my next great journey.

When zane came to live with grandma Beverly. I came and stayed to help my dear friend of many years( Beverly. ) Zane and I would spend hours together and I would walk and wait for the school bus with him. After getting Zane ready for school one morning . He told me I had put his sisters shorts on him. I ended up in tears. He put his small hand on my face wiped my tears with a hug and told me it was OK. Such a sweet young man... I didn't get to see Zane much after several years but when I did he always remembered me. My condolences to the family. Your in my thoughts and prayers.

Zane had such a kind and gentle heart, bringing joy and spunk wherever he went. I am so sorry for this family's heartbreaking loss. I pray they receive the comfort and peace that only God can give in a time such as this.

"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds."

I love you Zane (monkey man) Michael.. ( yes I used one of my nicknames for you🙈) I’ll always remember the first weekend away trip we had to ha ha tonka. All the singing we did.. how to played with my hair while I laid my head in your lap..you always treated me like the most precious thing in the world..You have such a beautiful and powerful smile..god and your eyes.. I could stare into them for hours without saying a word.. i love you so much. I can’t believe you’re gone still. We had so many plans for our future. what about our kitty and Aussie? Our bike rides and races?? The late nights with us cooking in the kitchen? What about all those movies we were showing each other?.. the anime’s..we had so many left. I wish you weren’t so stubborn and would’ve listened to us about driving safer but you just loved to live life to the fullest and always tried to have the most adrenaline pumping rides. I’ll never forget the time we got to 120.. the looks on our faces after we got off the bike and the way you held me while I took my helmet off and that kiss. I’ll never forget how you made me believe in and fall in love again. You’ve taken my heart with you..because I’m convinced you are my heart..we have each other and put in everything. We were healing each other from past traumas. We were going to be each other’s forever... My sweet handsome man...god my sweet,loving, handsome, intelligent, courageous, strong, intuitive and immaculate man.. laying in our bed and it’s still the worst nightmare I wish I could wake up from. I’ll miss you and I’ll love you.. forever and always.

My sweet handsome man.. I can’t believe I’m on this page, writing out my last words to you.. when I never thought we’d be separated. This still doesn’t feel real..we should be in bed watching our criminal minds or scary movie. We should be cuddling, with my head on your shoulder while we look into each others eyes while I’m playing with the hair on your chest or rubbing your stomach.. we should be in each-others arms right now but you left me.. you left all of us way too early. I’ve been yelling at you to drive safer.. your last text to me was..” “ you promised me... you were my person..my monkey, my king, partner in crime, my sweet loving stubborn handsome man.. you still are.. The first time you remember seeing me, you said that I was the most beautiful girl that you have ever laid your eyes on in the entire world.. that my laugh made you smile ear to ear.. The first time I remember seeing you was over at cons and you were the absolutely most captivating man I have ever laid my eyes on. Your voice was sensual. It wasn’t your looks but your eyes.. I believe the eyes are the window to the soul. And the second I looked into your eyes I was drawn to you. Like a magnet. See the thing is the first time you thought you saw me, was the third time I saw you, and since the first time I saw you and every time ( I do mean everytime, you were such an incredible absolutely amazing man) after there was never a time you didn’t take my breath away or steal it from me. We started talking when you were helping me move and I remember saying to Matt how well I connected with you and how enchanted I was with you. When you asked for my number I got butterflies in my stomach and light headed and ever since then we’ve been inseparable.. if you weren’t with me you were at work,riding with your buddies or spending time with your friends.. I’m going to miss our bedtime “rituals” and routines.. the 4a.m forehead kisses. I’m going to miss your smile. The way we woke each other up.
