Michael Andrew Ziobro, 22, of Springfield suddenly passed away on Monday April 10th. His beautiful life began on Sept. 24th, 1994. During his short time with us he touched so many hearts with his sweetness, kindness, sense of humor and contagious smile. Michael attended St. James School, Gaudineer and graduated from Jonathon Dayton High School in Springfield. Over the years, Michael played little league baseball, practiced Tae Kwon Do, learned and played electric guitar at The School of Rock, loved to ride his skateboards, and played lots and lots of video games – his favorites being Zelda and Call of Duty. Recently he began investing in the stock market, where he found great delight, but more importantly forged a bond with his grandpa that was beautiful to behold. Michael worked with his father at Claremont Construction as an Assistant Project Engineer, where every day the two of them made breakfast together, drove to work together and worked side by side where his Dad ‘showed him the ropes’. Their relationship grew into the tightest bond a father and son could have.
Michael joins his aunt Sarah, grandpa Victor, great aunt Marty, great grandmother (aka GiGi) and his beloved dogs Max and Leila in heaven. He is survived by his loving family: father Victor, mother Kristina, sister Alyssa, grandmother Grace, grandfather Scott, nana Nancy, great aunt Sally, uncle’s; Michael, Christopher and Scott, aunt Eileen and cousins Zachary, Hannah, Victoria, William, Ben and Charlotte and his best friend, his dog Tehya.
