Michael F. Rieser, passed away on March 29, 2018, at his home. He was 68 years old.

Michael requested there be no obituary, but he did want to acknowledge and thank the people who helped him this past year.
Primary among them is Dr. Rajguru at the Carbone Cancer Center, to whom he was immensely grateful. And he wanted to thank Kay, Amanda, TK, Cari, and the rest of the wonderful staff at Carbone. He also wanted to thank all of the people at Meriter, who took such excellent care of him. Particularly he wanted to thank David and Maurit.

Michael is survived by his wife of almost 45 years, Wendy; his son and daughter-in-law Richard and Erin Rieser, son, James Rieser, and daughter, Carey and son-in-law Eric Zimmerman. He is also survived by his third son and daughter-in-law, Quinn and Bernie Williams.
