Michael attended Florida State University from 1958 – 1962 where he began courting Andrea Naughton, also of Neptune Beach.

Upon Graduation, Michael moved to St. Augustine, Florida where he married Andrea Naughton at St Paul’s Catholic Church in Jacksonville Beach, Florida to start a family and begin his career in Financial Services. Michael and Andrea moved from St. Augustine FL to St. Petersburg FL to Houston Texas as they traveled through life raising their 5 children with his gregarious nature and her loving manner from the cradle till launching them out to the world as young adults.
