He then moved with his family to Dickinson where he grew up and called home. Michael attended Jefferson Elementary School, Hagen Jr. High, and Dickinson High School, graduating with honors in 2000. Michael loved sports and the outdoors. At a young age, he began hitting home runs and catching long passes. At age 6, he began hockey, which became the center of his life. He became a goalie around age 10 and still played and coached. His memories of being a goalie and his equipment will be forever cherished. His senior year was his most memorable because of the foreign exchange students and the first and only trip to the State Hockey Tournament at the new Ralph Engelstad Arena in Grand Forks. Michael was active and involved in so many things and enjoyed being with people. He developed many long lasting friendships that still linger today. He was involved with student council, hockey, basketball, track, baseball and golf in Junior High. He was a team captain his senior year in hockey. Michael attended NDSU in Fargo. While at NDSU, he was president of Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE), a Bison Ambassador for NDSU, and involved in NDSU Student Government. He played club hockey, and recently went to Hazen to help coach a goalie camp, and was just hired to coach goalies in Fargo. Michael worked many places, but his most memorable are while at Wendy?s, Sears, Kadrmas, Lee & Jackson, PC, and most recently at Scheels. Michael enjoyed many trips with family and friends, including two times to Cancun, many times to California, Arizona, Florida and many others. He would not hesitate making a trip somewhere with family, friends, or for an organization he was involved in. He was always doing something for or with someone. Michael loved to travel, golf, play tennis, racquetball, softball, snow ski, kneeboard and jet ski. He absolutely enjoyed being at the lake and on or in the water.
