He was a former dairyman and had recently retired after working several years at Oak Hill Farms in Folsom. Michael was proud to call himself a “Cowboy” and he was that in every sense of the word. He loved horses, bull riding, Hee-Haw and listening to country music. He had spent countless hours sitting in his shed listening to his favorite Country Gold music. Michael loved deer hunting with his buddies, who called him the nickname and CB handle of “Blue Mule”. He enjoyed picking with his friends and everyone he met but had never had a fuss or cross words with anybody. Michael had a special place in his heart for his pet dog of 16 years, his Blue Heeler “Tip”.
