Michael was born in Louisville, Kentucky March 8th, 1966. He was a 1984 graduate of White County High School in Sparta, Tennessee. He loved to work and had a strong work ethic. He was the youngest DJ in White County Tennessee starting his work life at the age of 15 at WUCR AM in Sparta. Known as “Brad Michaels” he continued to work with radio through his teen years. He had a fulfilling career in retail management and sales until he was fully disabled by Multiple Sclerosis (MS). His great joy in the last several years was his calling to love and lead the youth at Cumberland Heights Church of Christ.
Michael never let his struggles or later in life his disease (MS) define or limit him. He chose to live by faith in His Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who rescued him from the disease of addiction and gave him over 30 years of sobriety. Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2005 he chose to lean on his faith as he lost mobility and dealt with other debilitating issues from his MS. While he was confined to a wheel chair these last few years he was determined to serve with joy and a smile. Michael is now walking and running with Jesus.
A memorial service for Michael will be on Sunday, January 12th at 6:30 pm at Cumberland Heights Church of Christ in Doyle, Tennessee with Doug Downs officiating.The family will receive friends prior to the service from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm.
