Michael grew up in Arlington, MA. He graduated Minuteman Technical High School in 1983 and moved onto Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston where he studied Civil Engineering. Afterwards, Michael worked as an engineer at Bechtel Engineering, then moved onto working as a Union Carpenter and started his own business known as Minuteman Carpentry. Through his humor and wide span of knowledge, Michael could connect to anyone he encountered. He always knew a little bit about everything. Michael’s charismatic personality made him easy to get along with. He had many friends. Michael’s hobbies consisted of reading books about economics and history, eating delicious food of all sorts, biking, walking, drinking Dunkins’ and spending time with his two daughters. One did not have to know Michael for very long to learn that he would help anyone at any time, especially his family. He loved and cherished those around him and gave each day his best. He will be missed by all. May he rest in peace with his late wife, Kristin Lovett.
