    I had the honor of meeting Micheal through his daughter Alyssa, who is like my sister. It was such a privilege for my children and me to spend time with him. Micheal and Cindy opened their home to us during our visit. His sweet spirit and kindness will forever be imprinted in our hearts and our memories. My prayers for peace, acceptance and understanding goes out to all the family, friends and those lives he touched. My the memories he left behind bring happy thoughts and a smile to their faces.

    Michael T was a true brother to me. He knew theater lights and indoor pyrotechnics and did both for The Magic of Dave Vaught and Company for several years, Michael made me look much better on stage than I was ! I feel like Ive lost a big part of me because he left his mark on a lot of other places in my life as well ! He loved his country and fought for it proudly. My world will never be the same without MIchale T. No more suffering brother, RIP. I love ya Bro ! Dave

    Michael T was a part of my life at Bristol Ballet & Virginia Intermont College. I met him when I was in high school and he was always in the wings and working backstage. We were on stage together in countless Nutcrackers. He is a part of my life that I have fond memories of and those are treasures to me. We had been emailing last fall and I was glad to have this last contact with him. I know he is in peace and I’m praying for his family during this time.

  7. Allyson Dowdell

    When I was honored with the role of playing Clara in the Bristol Ballet’s The Nutcracker, Michael T was my Drosselmeyer. We reunited in the production of Coppelia as he played Dr. Coppelius to my Swanhilda. I have such good memories our time on stage. He was a wonderful addition to our performances. He was a kind soul and I thought of him many times after I left the world of dance. I often wondered where he was and how he was doing. My condolences to his family and friends. May he rest in peace. He was a very special person indeed.

  8. S. Noel Ware

    What a genuine and kind soul Michael was. He was such a large and vivacious presence during our time at Bristol Ballet/Virginia Intermont College. Gone far too soon😔
    My heart goes out to all who knew and loved him.

  9. Laura S (Thomas) Dutton

    I have no words for the loss I feel. I am heartbroken that Michael T is gone but I will hold dear to my heart the many happy times we had. We met when I was a student at Virginia Intermont College, he was a groomsman in my wedding, he was an apartment mate for a while, he was the god father for my first child, Vivian. Though we had fallen out of contact in recent years, I had longed for the day we would reconnect. My heart has a big void in it tonight. He was a very special person and will be so missed. Rest easy my friend.

    Although I only briefly met Michael I could tell he was a gentle soul because of his willingness to rehome one of his pets showed me that. I pray he rests in peace.
    Prayers for his family.
