When he wasn't taking care of his family or doing his daily chores, he enjoyed playing video games, watching classic movies and listening to music. Michael loved to travel to the shore and to Lancaster County with his family and document these trips with his camera. He found great pleasure in celebrating family birthdays. His favorite holiday was Christmas. Michael was always kind, loving and helpful to his family and others. His mother called him the "gentle soul". He brought great happiness and joy to his family.
