Michael graduated from the University of Illinois College of Business where he was Vice President of the Fraternal Organization Phi Beta Lambda. Michael was known to be the most organized and effective planner for their events, known for his beyond exceptional attention to detail. Michael was also a member of Phi Theta Kappa at Parkland College where he served as their treasurer. Michael was a member of the organization EOTP while attending the University of Illinois and is forever known as then man who could command any room by mere presence alone. In his career Michael served as an auditor for the State of Illinois, well known and loved by his colleagues and superiors as well as being integral to several historic audits that were later presented to the Illinois Congress. Michael was a lover of puzzles, enigmas, poetry, art, dance, food, ancient cultures, world religions and all studies of far eastern Zen. He drew inspiration from the heroism of his mother through her life, a sense of curiosity towards the world passed to him by his father, and a bravery to challenge new heights from his sister. He inspired us all and he will be sorely missed by every life he touched.
