He then pursued a theology degree at Wesleyan University and was a brother in the Chi Psi fraternity. After graduating in 1981, Michael developed an interest in computer technology. He worked as an information technology consultant beginning at Mass Mutual and continuing on to Cigna, where he spent most of his career. More recently Michael was a partner of Factorum Inc., a computer consultant company. Michael played football for Wesleyan and continued his love of the sport as an avid San Francisco 49ers fan.

Those who knew and loved him were entertained by his witty sense of humor. Michael is survived by his wife of 16 years Carol A. Petruff, MD of West Hartford, two brothers Richard Stanley Kucinskas and wife Shelagh (Gleeson) of VA and Thomas S. Kucinskas and wife Artjana (Meco) of FL.
