James Michael enjoyed the staff that cared for him over the years, especially Kim and Karen. He was close to the Howard Nepp family and thankful for all they did for him. He had a smile that could melt your heart. He was a Green Bay Packer fan, liked listening to music, playing on his computer, and he loved playing Yahtzee and was quite good at it. Michael didn’t like the cold.

James Michael is predeceased by his parents. He is survived by cousins.
