Following his discharge, Michael worked in the accounting office at the former Fonda Container and

Michael was very involved in community affairs serving on the Board of Directors of the Chamber of

until his passing.

Survivors include his wife of 52 years, Helene; their children, Amy Ward and her husband, Dennis and
