From there he moved on to construction, running heavy equipment.

He was a very proud member of the Operating Engineers Local 139. He kept working through treatment until he finally decided to retire on June 1, 2022. Michael had a TON of friends who he all had nicknames for. He would go out of his way to help his family and friends. He was the best guy anyone could know. He loved his dogs, especially Sophie. He was always out working in the garage and one of his favorite things to do was get in his truck and go for a ride.

He is survived by his wife, Jane; daughter, Makayla; nieces, Charity (Brad) Kirch and Ashley (Jake) Meudt; great nieces Destiny and “Big Girl” Gracie; great nephew Darien; aunt, Val Simpson; and many many very special friends.

Michael, we all love you very much. Your big heart, sense of humor, and presence will be deeply missed, but we know you are no longer in pain.

You are finally free, fly high.
