He had an extensive career in the staffing industry for over 35 years that spanned from Florida, Georgia, and Texas.  He was a laid back, quiet man devoted to his family and friends, and a true animal lover.  He enjoyed a robust political conversation as he was an avid follower of the political stage.

Michael was born to Vonda Lee Taylor and Harry Louis Ragsdale on September 29, 1962 in Key West, Florida.  Predeceased by his parents and brother Tim, he leaves to mourn his wife Fran (Orlando), son Bryan, stepson Wesley Nott (Tannia), granddaughters Aurora and Viviana, brothers Robert, Chris, and Harry (Susie).

Rest eternal grant on him, Oh Lord
And let light perpetual shine upon him
May he rest in peace
