Michael was born February 27, 1944 in Canton, Ohio the son of Michael and Lucille Rinkovsky.
Michael grew up in the San Fernando Valley in California where he worked as a security guard and drove a truck. He was in the Army, serving in Vietnam. He was dedicated to the love of his life and companion for 36 years, Faye Rinkovsky.
Michael enjoyed spending time with his family, rock and roll music, crime TV and food. He loved his coffee, breakfast burritos and sugary treats. In the early morning you would often see him walking to Taco Bell, Burger King or McDonalds to greet employees and retrieve a meal.
Michael marched to the beat of his own drum. He was unique and that made him special to those who took the time to know him. He loved the Lord and loved his family. We know that Heaven is a much more interesting place with him there.
He was preceded in death by his parents, brother James and his life partner Faye. He is survived by his sisters Mary Ann, Priscilla and Margaret and brother, Chuck. His step children, Cheryl, Teri and Scott and his grandchildren Ben, Eden and Jessica.
Michael will be laid to rest at Maplewood Cemetery. Arrangements and cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the Ozarks.
