He is survived by his loving parents, Steve Weissinger and Susan Davis, his sister Amanda Weissinger and her fiancé, Drake Rapp, aunts, uncles, cousins, as well as his many friends. Michael is preceded in death by his paternal and maternal grandparents.
Michael loved playing basketball, from Upwards Church to Timberland High School and on to a select team, the Midwest Crew, even helping to win the Missouri State Show Me Games. He made many close friends on the teams, including Nate, Shyamal, Kamron, Sam and Cole to name a few.
He loved adventure, from camping and fishing trips to vacation locales such as Cabo San Lucas, Vegas, Key West and Cancun. He especially loved Key West, hanging out at the docks, having fun on the beach, or enjoying the bustling night life with his family and friends.
Christmas was a favorite time of year for Michael. A family tradition, started by his grandpa and then continued by his mother, was making and then enjoying a "Seafood Chowder." Over the years Michael helped perfect the recipe so that every Christmas was special and the tradition would surely endure.
He was a smart, kind, and outgoing person with a very creative mind. He was a very outgoing person who was always there when anybody needed help. He was looking forward to graduating and starting his engineering position at a local firm.
Michael will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and his favorite fur companions, Willie and Roo. He was beautiful inside and out. He was known for his smile, his laugh and his heart of gold. Michael exemplified what it meant to live life to its fullest.
There will forever be a hole in our hearts for Michael. No words can describe our feelings. You will always be with us, our memories of you will never be diminished.
Memorials may be made in Michael's name to Make-A-Wish Foundation or Shriners Hospitals for Children.
