Michael was born at Fort MacArthur in San Pedro, California in December of 1953. Currently, he is seen every Tuesday and Thursday at the front desk of our center logging in people for lunch.
He has 3 brothers and 2 sisters and they are scattered in Oregon, Arizona, California, and Oklahoma.
Michael enjoys volunteering. He was the Volunteer Director for a food pantry in Redondo Beach, CA for 8 ½ years. This “Circle of Life” served food on two Saturdays and two Wednesdays a month. They had acupressure, yoga and massage therapy on Tuesdays. They also had “Circle of Friends with games, birthdays and home-cooked meals.
Asked what was his most interesting time was he answered that he did therapeutic massages for a dermatologist friend. This friend practiced his dermatology on Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor.
His biggest obstacle is keeping things “on par” (even keel).
Proud of the fact that he sent a letter to ABC news to nominate a young lady to receive a $1,000 scholarship – Kool Kids. She got it.
Words of Wisdom from Michael are “keep the faith”. His Grandmother taught him this.
Warm weather is what Michael is looking forward to.
