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.

Jackson of  Princeton; father, Tommy Rose and his wife Elsie of Bluewell; sisters, Tranessa and Eddie Lewis of Princeton, Shasta and Christopher Mosley of Lorado, MaryAnn Rose and Nona Gail Rose of Calhoun, Ga., Phoebe Rose of Bluewell; several nieces and nephews and one great-niece, Kreedence MaOma East of Princeton; his fiancée, Ashley Vaught; and his former spouse, Brandy Taylor Cardwell, with whom he had remained good friends. Michael had an extended family, through Ashley, to whom he grew to know and love which included nine nieces and nephews, five sisters and their spouses, parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles.

He will be deeply missed as a father, son, brother, uncle and a friend to so many.
