Michael Renee Gonzales was born in Fort Morgan, Colorado on January 20, 1972 to Sabina Reyes and Jose Gonzales. Michael died on October 18, 2019 due to respiratory complications of pneumonia.
Although Michael was born in Fort Morgan, CO, he was raised and lived most of his life in Denver. At the age of 13 Michael was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) but he never let his disease define him. Through his life he was always a positive, kind and happy person. Michael had a love for playing the guitar, drawing, listening to any genre of music (Metallica was his favorite band) and meeting new people. Michael always loved being around kids especially his niece and nephews. Michael enjoyed his life to the fullest and spent all his free time outdoors until his health would no longer permit it.
Everyone that met Michael knew right away he was someone special and he will be dearly missed forever. He is survived by his mother Sabina Gonzales, stepfather James Baldizan, biological father Jose Gonzales, brother Shawn Gonzales, sister Angela Pena, niece Isabella Pena, nephews Adrian Michael Gonzales, Brady James Glenn, Julian James Glenn and grandmother Victoria Reyes as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
Michael was 47 years young.
A celebration of his life and a light reception will be held at Aspen Mortuaries in Commerce City directly after the services.
