Michael also loved music and especially loved to play “Happy Birthday” on his trumpet to others. He had a passion for teaching as well. He was a beloved teacher at Medford Area Senior High for most of his career until his retirement in 2003. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends. Michael was a member of Holy Rosary Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus.
