Michael had many talents and enjoyed trying new things.  The various jobs that he held reflect his positive spirit and dedicated commitment to the well being of his family.  He repaired and sold household appliances, was part owner of a Texaco service station in New York, and finally, was Security Shift Supervisor for Fitzgeralds, a local casino. 1997 retired due to ill health.
