Michael was an avid golfer. In fact it wasn’t uncommon for him to be seen out on the golf course with his golf buddies on a nice day, unless he was at home being the “house-husband” that he was so lovingly referred to. He was a very proud father, grandfather, and husband, who will be deeply missed by his family, his many friends, and all who knew him.

Michael was preceded in death by his father, James Botsford. He is survived by his wife of 16 years, Jaclynn; his sons, Jason (Lisa) Botsford, Matt (Mieke) Botsford; step-sons, Jeffery Kimber and Ryan Kimber; mother Joan Botsford; sister, Marcia (Leo) Craft; his aunt, Sue (Mike) Haugen; and seven grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held Thursday September 27th, 2012 at 11:00am at the Williamston Free Methodist Church, 4400 N. Williamston Rd, Williamston, MI. with Rev. Douglas Bradshaw officiating. A dinner will follow at the Church after the service. Those desiring may make contributions to Sparrow Hospice House of Mid-Michigan, P.O. Box 30480, Lansing, MI 48909.
