Michael loved his family, his faith, and his work, and he was proud of his family’s history in Franklin County as farmers of both tobacco and the locally famous Luscher strawberry patch and, more recently, Sig Luscher Brewery. Michael was employed with the Kentucky Department of Education, then retired from a position as director of facilities at Scott County Public Schools. Michael served two terms as president of the Kentucky School Plant Managers Association. His work career was dedicated to building energy-efficient school buildings that helped children thrive and achieve. Michael was a member of First Baptist Church at the Singing Bridge from a teenager where he served as a student minister, coached softball, served as a deacon of the church, taught the young men’s Sunday School class, and helped the church through several floods as a member of the building facilities’ committee. Michael was a loving husband, dad, and pappaw, a stained-glass artist, and a man who loved the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the black bear art and photography that originated there.
