Michael worked in the construction industry in Des Moines for many years. He loved to travel and proudly became a long- haul transportation courier in the trucking industry.  He enjoyed driving across the nation for several years before retiring in Scottsboro, Alabama where he was a beloved member of the community.  Michael often expressed his love of quiet small-town life. He never met a stranger and was known to engage in jovial conversations with those he met. Michael enjoyed all types of music, sports and keeping informed about current events.
