He grew up on his father's dairy farm in Exeter Township, graduated from Monticello High School in 1964, Green County Teacher's College, and received a Bachelor's Degree in Education from UW-Platteville.

They relocated to Juda where Michael taught fifth grade for twelve years while also farming with his father. He and Carol purchased their own dairy farm in Spring Grove Township in 1975. They retired from farming in 2006, and moved to Monticello. Michael was a lifetime learner and avid reader who loved farming, his dogs, and traveling with Carol.
