Michael loved hunting, farming and occasionally scratching off a lottery ticket. He was an avid UK Basketball fan that never missed a game nor missed an episode of NCIS. Michael was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He loved to cut up with others and got a kick out of making people laugh. Michael adored his family, and you could catch him at his grandchildren’s volleyball and baseball games proudly cheering them on. 

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked expressions of sympathy take the form of donations to be made to Hospice of Southern Kentucky. Donations can be dropped off at the funeral home.
