Michael was an engineer on the railroad for the majority of his employed years. However, many remember and love him for his role as Mr. Food at Jolly Tots Childcare Center, a local business owned and operated by him and his wife with locations in Worthington and New Albany. Michael was a family man devoted to his wife, children, and grandchildren. He was a fun, nurturing and loving father to his four children.

Daddy, as I watched you laying there in bed I could see you were tired. You have given me such a wonderful childhood and memories that I will cherish each and every day; for that I take comfort knowing that u are resting peacefully with our Lord. Thank you for the countless games of Yahtzee, Euchure, Uno and many more. Thank you for letting me win some of those games as well, lol. Thank you for making our vacations so much fun for I will never forget them or the many games of the “alphabet” game followed by the “Stuckeys ” game. I don’t think there is enough room to say it all, so to sum it up: I have always been so proud to have a daddy like you:) loving and kissing you all over daddy:)
