He loved to make video games and graduated from Coastal Bend College with an Associates in Computer Technology. He loved his family and everyone he met. If ever you needed a friend or needed words of encouragement, Michael was the one to go to. He loved to laugh and make others laugh and he was always willing to try to help where he could. He will be missed terribly by all who had the pleasure to know or meet him.
