Michael is survived by his 3 children: Michael Jr, Chris and Amanda; 9 grandchildren: Charity, Jennifer, Jeramy, Christopher, Ashley, Jacob, Loren, Kassy and Penny; 22 great grandchildren; sister’s Carol and Judy. 

Michael was preceded in death by his parent’s Frank and Bertha DeBoise; His siblings: Larry, Jr, Helen, Thelma, Bonnie, and Mary.

Michael was a simple man who had 2 dogs he loved dearly. Dudley preceded him in death but Dixie stuck by his side to the end. Much of Michael’s free time was spent camping and fishing at Crooked lake, cooking for himself or others, cutting firewood and enjoying watching The Walking Dead. Michael’s strong willed personality, quick wit and sense of humor made time with him memorable and fun. 

 Per Michael’s request no funeral will be held. Instead a bonfire potluck party will be in Cadillac on October 3rd, 2020 at 5pm. Contact Jen Johns on facebook or call (231)429-6901 for address.
