Michael became our neighbor in March 2020 when he moved into the house next door to us in Gananoque, Ontario, Canada. He was a quiet but friendly man. Over the summer we shared conversations and common interests and he seemed to enjoy his new neighborhood. We were shocked and saddened to learn of his passing. We regret not having had more time to get to know him better. All Michael's neighbors express their condolences.

Rest in peace Michael,
Doug Gravelle and Judy Senkowski
