Michael was born in Columbia and spent his life in Maury County. He enjoyed painting and made a career working alongside his father. Completing his hunter safety certification at 10, Michael could take a squirrel out of a tree, and also liked to dove hunt. Family gatherings were always his favorite as a young boy, especially holidays. While at Spring Hill High School, he followed another passion and played baseball and golf. Professionally, he enjoyed St. Louis Cardinals baseball. Michael will be remembered for his loyalty though. He protected those around him and remained loyal even in difficult times.

He is survived by his father and mother: Mike and Joyce Kelley of Columbia; brother: David Miller of Rutherford County; a sister: Dottie Menko of Philadelphia, PA; niece and nephew: Hannah Miller and Daniel Menko; and several aunts and uncles.
