Michael grew up in Peralta Hills (now Orange), the youngest boy of four siblings. He graduated from Orange High School, went to Orange Coast College and then joined the Navy. After four years in the Navy, he was discharged honorably and went to work in manufacturing at Textron, where he worked for 30 years. He was an avid golfer and bowler, a long-time member of the Santa Ana Elks and enjoyed gardening, especially growing hot peppers. He loved travelling up the California coast and going to Laughlin to golf. He was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather and will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him.
Michael is survived by his wife of 52 years, Faye Delgado, his daughter Kimberly and son Dean (Julie), stepdaughter Sandra and grandchildren Kenny, Justin and Sierra.
