Michael also leaves many, many other close relatives and friends. Michael loved to hunt and fish. He also loved the game of baseball, whether he was coaching a team himself or cheering on his dad's teams. He was an avid University of Virginia fan and attended football and basketball games almost from the day he was born. Michael was a very strong Christian and very active in his church especially in the youth and men's ministries. He did whatever was asked of him every Sunday, from singing, to working the sound board, to loading and unloading all of the equipment. Michael was a 2008 graduate of The Covenant School in Charlottesville, Virginia, where he served as a team captain of the baseball team his senior year. He returned to Covenant the following year to coach the 8th grade baseball team. Michael attended Piedmont Virginia Community College and then went to work at Southern States, where he worked for approximately two years. He then went to work for Intrastate Pest Control and was presently working for the valley office.
