Michael was a son, brother, cousin, nephew, and friend. Michael was a part of the homeless community and he enjoyed the life he lived. Michael was well known in his community and surrounding areas. He was a kind, sweet, caring person and so many people have made memories with him that will last a life time. Michael was cherished by all those who crossed paths with him. He will be forever loved and missed. 

Michael will forever be known as a hero. He and two others were out one cold January night in 2022 and approached a dumpster where they heard a newborn cry. They reached into the dumpster and pulled out a sweet newborn baby boy who was later named Saul who is now thriving thanks to Michael and the others. His heroism will never be forgotten!
