Michael married Deborah Dees on December 20, 1972. Michael and Deborah spent many years traveling and started an herb and vitamin business called HoneyCombs Industries. They lived in Ohio, Arizona, Kentucky, and Utah before settling in Montrose, Colorado in 1980. Michael and Deborah lived a very alternative lifestyle and welcomed two more women into their family, Carlene in Jan of 1978 whom Michael shared 28 years with and Brenda in Oct of 1978, whom he shared 22 years with. The four of them spent many years working together to build the business into one that people all over the country counted on to help them with their health concerns while also creating a very large, loving, boisterous and fun family. Michael and Deborah had 10 children together while Michael and Carlene had six children and Michael and Brenda had five children. Michael was an extremely charismatic individual dedicated to his family and the alternative health business that helped thousands of people since it's inception in 1975. Michael was a very gifted guitar player and had a beautiful singing voice. He loved his ranch in Colorado and the beaches of Kauai where he spent the last two years kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking and making friends with all the locals and the many traveling musicians there.
