He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Shirley (Kitty) LeTendre, his grandfather, Thomas Dunn and uncles Tom LeTendre and Dave Andrews. A memorial fund is being established in Michael's name. Michael was a sensitive, creative soul with a particular talent for stop-motion animation films and found object art. The robots he built were sold all over the world -- France, England, Spain and Canada. Michael loved music. He loved to draw. Sweet Michael, this world was never meant for one as beautiful as you.
