Michael was a kind and gentle man who would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need.
Michael received his Bachelor’s degree in Business Entrepreneurship and worked for the Kwataqnuk Resort, Kicking Horse Job Corp and most recently the Tribal Education Department where he found his niche mentoring young adults entering college.
