Michael passed away peacefully in his sleep Friday October 6, 2017. He is survived by his loving daughters, Jennifer Rubi and Rebecca Diephouse, their spouses, Ben and Stephen and his 6 grandchildren as well as his two surviving brothers Joe with wife Kate in Erie, PA and John with wife Chris in Novi, MI, and countless nieces and nephews. His other siblings, Bob, Jean, Bill and Dan preceded him in death, as well as his parents Joseph and Betty.
In addition to the large family, Michael had touched so many people throughout his life including colleagues, friends, and strangers. He had a passion for helping people that was always present. There is no doubt that anyone who is reading this, and knew Michael, will have stories about how he has been around at some significant moment to make sure that everyone was enjoying themselves, or that he was there to help them in some way. The examples are too great to list, but they are real. In his life, he had been a wonderful and loving father who taught his daughters that hard work pays off and family is the most important thing you have.
Michael grew up in Erie, PA and then spent much of his adult life in Columbus, OH. He recently relocated to California where he spent some well deserved quality time with his youngest daughter, Becky and her family.
His heart and spirit will live on in all of those that he touched. and he will be remembered always for the great things that he did for others, no matter how big or small. Michael will be greatly missed by all.
