Michael was a 1983 graduate of Jacksonville High School. He has been employed at Quincy Compressor and later in the dietary department at the Illinois Veterans Home.

Survivors in addition to his wife, Tracy, include two children, Lesley (Mike) Suter of Chicago, IL, and Allyus (Bethany) Fritz of Longmont, CO; his mother, Ruth Fritz of Jacksonville, IL; a brother, Craig Fritz of Jacksonville; and three nieces and nephews, Sam, Jennifer and Abigail Fritz.
