to live eternally with his Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.

New York, Michael attended St. Michael’s College in Vermont,

practiced law in the Houston area since 1977 and developed
close friendships with many of his clients.

life” in 1984 and moved to Sugar Land. He was an avid golfer
and shared this passion with both of his sons. An active
member of the Quail Valley Church, Michael lived a life of
faith and service. He was known for his generosity in
helping others in his community. Michael leaves behind a
great legacy of unselfish compassion.
