His passion was working on cars and talking about cars. He enjoyed hanging out with family and friends, reminiscing about his childhood, playing pranks on his family and friends, he loved his church family even though he had not been able to attend due to medical issues, and he loved to tease his grandchildren, but they always knew grandpa would give them a dollar or two or three.
The family would like to thank Sooner Hospice for their thoughtfulness and guidance through this rough time. Also, we want to thank Skyview Nursing Home and their staff for their compassion. We would love to thank Brother and Sister Been.
A Memorial Service for Michael will be held at Portland Avenue Pentecostal Church on 39th and S. Portland, Oklahoma City on Saturday, October 24th at 2pm with interment at Arlington Memorial Gardens

Mike was my baby brother and we did not always see eye to eye on things. But I was there for him until the end and the honor of being there for him was overwhelming. Mike and I had a great childhood growing up with wonderful parents and being 4 years older than Mike it was my job of watching out for my little brother. But I did not mind it was only him and I. When we lost my Dad in 83 it shook us both to the core. In 05 after Mom passed it almost destroyed Mike. I tried to help him but he had to help himself. He lived with Tory for a while and the kids adored him. Mike was a good man and an even greater grandfather. I miss him so much already.
Mya Sophia Simpson Vazquez says
I loved my grandpa very much, he was funny he was sweet and he loved me. I saw him the Sunday before he passed and he had no hair which made me sad. But I still loved him. He lived with us and we got very close. He was proud of me I could tell. He always gave me dollars. His teeth were funny because he could take them out and he scared us with them. He also gave us candy my favorite candy.
Mea Alexis Simpson Vazquez says
Dear Grandpa, you always give us money and you scare us with your teeth and you play with us. We came over and stayed the night you was fun and funny you love us you always keep us safe you help my mom with Christmas and Halloween. When I saw you Sunday before you passed I did not cry on the the outside I cried on the inside. You gave my mom money to buy the baby clothes for Shawnia. When Mya was a little kid I took a picture with you and Mya.
When I was a little kid you always make me laugh. I tell everybody at school that you passed away and I miss you and will never forget you. I believe that you are with God and Jesus. love mea.
