Michael came to the United States from Ireland in 1957. Within a few years, he started working for the NYC transit, where he had a distinguished career. Upon his retirement from the buses, he committed his life to his construction company. He was an extremely hard worker and was very well respected for his excellent work ethic and craftsmanship. When he fully retired, Michael and Margaret moved to East Durham, NY, where he enjoyed hosting family and friends and tooling around on his tractors. He also loved refereeing the family softball and volleyball games. Michael was generous, kind, funny and loved to tell a good story over a cup of tea.
