Rosenthal, Michael, was a bright and a very serious student growing up in Miami. He was a valedictorian of his high school class; a Westinghouse Science Award winner for his work designing an accident-free automated highway system, and was an accomplished computer programmer early on when mainframes were the wave of the future. None of his academic and professional accomplishments are nearly as descriptive of who he was as his keen sense of humor, his courage in the face of the challenges life threw at him and his incredibly kind nature. Michael was a sweet soul who saw the good in everyone and everything. For those who were fortunate enough to know Michael will remember him for his appreciation and compassion for everyone. Michael is survived by his sister Ellen Edwards and Ellen's husband, Greg Edwards living in Kettle Falls, Washington, and by their daughter Terra Edwards, Terra's husband, James Adam Redfield, and their son, Isaac Redfield, living in Palo Alto, California. Michael is also survived by his brother Robert Rosenthal and Robert's wife, Susan Rosenthal, living in Miami, Florida, and their two sons: Jonathan Rosenthal, his wife, Jenny Rosenthal and their son, Drew Rosenthal, living in Detroit, Michigan; and Stephen Rosenthal, his wife Rebecca Rosenthal, and their daughter, Finley Rosenthal living in Miami, Florida. Services for Michael will be held on Sunday, March 31 at 2:00 p.m.at Mt. Nebo/Riverside 5900 SW 77 Avenue. In lieu of flowers, please make donations on-line at www.fellowshiphouse.org
