Michael was born and raised in New Milford except for three years when the family moved to Mystic,CT during WWII. They returned to New Milford in 1945. Michael attended local public schools until 1955 when he went to the Oakwood Friends School in Poughkeepsie, NY from which he graduated in 1958. He graduated from Clark University in Worcester, MA in 1963 with a degree in Geography. From 1964 until 1966 he was in the Peace Corps, stationed in Sierra Leone, West Africa as a "Generalist" which involved building schools, health centers, a 90 foot bridge and training people to raise swamp rice to increase their rice yields. Upon return to the USA, Mike was employed by the CT State Dept of Mental Retardation for 35 years as a Social Worker/Case Manager for indviduals with developmental disabilities.Upon retirement in 2001 Mike continued to serve on the Board of Directors for The Children's Center, a child care facility, in New Milford (since 1982), as well as serving as President of the Upper Merryall Cemetery Ass'n. He enjoyed driving all his life so becoming a volunteer driver for the Red Cross was a natural. Mike and his wife, Susan Somers, enjoyed gardening, traveling, reading as well as a number of other interests including raising one son, Michael Sean, and lots of animals.
