He held a special place in his heart for his grandchildren as well as his grandmother Sophie Blinstrub and aunt Sally Blinstrub. Michael was loved and respected by everyone who knew him. He was a rock to those who loved him, always there to lend an ear, a hand, or his dry sense of humor when the occasion called for it. There was no one with a bigger heart. Michael enjoyed many sports in his developmental years and was a devoted member of the Nova Nation. He was most proud of Villanova's National Basketball Championships and often traveled to watch them play. He developed a passion for golf and rarely passed up an opportunity to join his friends in a spirited game of golf. His passion for golf was only exceeded by his love of family and his closest friends.
