Mr. Waller was born on July 9, 1992, in Vandalia. He was the son of Dan and Carla (Sidwell) Engelbrektson. He married Kayla Schneider.
Michael was a true outdoorsman – he began hunting at an early age to help provide for his family. This taught Michael a true appreciation for nature and the outdoors. He enjoyed boating, fishing and kayaking, among other outdoor hobbies. Michael was a hard worker and was known for keeping busy. He had a wonderful sense of humor and loved playing tricks on family and friends. But his true love was being a father to Eli and spending time with his family. He was a skilled carpenter for Charlie Pryor Construction.
Besides his mother and father, he is survived by his wife; son, Eli Scott Waller; brothers and sisters, Monica Grigg, Cary Miller, twin brother Casey Waller, Dani Leas, Kyle Engelbrektson, Isaac Engelbrektson and Gustav Engelbrektson; grandmothers, Donna Hames and Mary Engelbrektson; grandfather, Carl Sidwell; and 16 nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by a grandfather, Kenneth Engelbrektson, and a nephew, Easton Grigg.
