Michael was born on December 30, 1955 in Mansfield, Ohio to Esther and Stanley Sumergrad. He attended grade school at St. Peter’s and graduated from Ontario Senior High School, where he was a member of the varsity swim team. Michael suffered from mental and medical conditions which prevented him from working and he resided for twelve years in the wonderful care of Scenic Pointe Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, in Millersburg, Ohio. He enjoyed taking walks through town and made many friends through the years; one of these, was George Clark, whom was his closest. Michael was well loved by everyone that knew him and he will be missed.

Michael is survived by his loving sister, Dr. Susan F. Julius and her husband, Elward M. Ehli, of New Orleans, Louisiana; his devoted aunts, Marianne Cappadonna and Josephine Contra, both of Mansfield; loving cousins, Benita Sullivan of Strongsville, Marianne (David) Bohne, of San Diego, CA, Annette (Dale) Gracon of Fairview, Benjamin Contra, Jr. of Melle Center, Christine (Al) Berger of Mansfield; and many second cousins and other relatives.

Sumergrad (in 1996), his Uncle Ernest A. Cappadonna, his Aunt Johanna Cappadonna of Centerville, and cousin, Ernest Cappadonna, Jr.
