Michael had many dear friends and was always able to make people laugh and smile with his boisterous personality. He had a love for animals especially his dogs, Jade and Tinka. He enjoyed playing with every child he came in contact with and taught many kids how to skate. Michael was like a big kid himself. He would always give of himself when someone was in need and enjoyed helping others. He enjoyed 4 wheeling, skating and spending every spare moment of his time with his beloved daughter, Alexis and  his fiancée, Ashley.

He had a passion for life and through the help of family and friends, was able to leave this world with many wonderful memories.

His was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Frances O. Cardwell; paternal grandparents, Flem and Snow Rose; special aunt, Ruth L. Dove; and one nephew, Matthew Lee Cardwell who led the way to his glorious home going.
