He had dedicated his life to helping others in recovery. When he was not in the rooms of AA you could find Michael riding his Motorcycle, working on his car, or at the dog park with his Boston Terrier Ozzy. Michael loved life and was always living in the moment, he always enjoyed whatever he was doing.
