The world was blessed when Michael was born on March 20th, 1966 in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Michael was born to two loving parents, Paul and Juanita Richardson. Around the age of four Mike began his life in Florida. Mike had a fun and loving childhood. He loved and excelled in sports like football, basketball, and even baseball. He made many lifelong friends while playing sports. He played games with friends, rode bikes, laughed with his sister, travelled with his family, and enjoyed life. Mike's house was the neighborhood hangout he always said it was because his mom was such a good cook, but we all know its because people just loved spending time with him. As he got older he began boxing more and more. He was a big guy with an even bigger heart. He loved to ride dirt bikes with friends and family. He made so many great memories while riding dirt bikes both for competition and for fun. Mike had so many good nights going out with his cousins and friends. As a young adult he loved to go to bars, and have a good time.
Everyone who had the chance to know him was better person for it. He will forever be known for his big heart, calm demeaner and his large sense of humor. He taught us all how to enjoy life, laugh often and love each other.
Mike met Dianne at a wedding, and their fi rst date was at his parents annual Halloween party. He went as a nerd and she was dressed as a cow, he always said he liked her utters and the rest is history, they have two daughters together Carli and Chelsey. Mike was the best dad and husband anyone could ask for. He was patient, supportive and always made you feel safe. He was so good to his girls and we will miss him greatly, however, we are forever grateful for the things he has taught us and stories he was able to share with us.
Mike was a pipe fitter for over 30 years at Palm Beach Fire sprinklers this was a family company. He always said he was grateful to be able to work with his dad, brother in law and family friends . After the business was closed Mike found joy in things like making corn toss boards, hunny- do lists and anything else that involved wood and labor. His garage was his favorite part of his home, he created things, told stories, and taught Carli about life.
As Mike became older he found joy in being at his home. Where he loved watching the Miami Dolphins play on Sundays, and having company over to play corn toss with and make food on the grill. Mike was a giver, so selfless and kind. He loved his family and they loved him. Mike made so many wonderful memories with loved ones that no one could ever forget.
