Michael Dwayne Dantzler was born on March 13, 1964, in Omaha, Nebraska to Eddie and Donna Dantzler. He was the second oldest of five siblings. Michael graduated from Burke High School in 1982. He made an impression as a hard worker who poured his heart and soul into the many positions he held over the years, including Manager at the Omaha Country Club for 15 years, Juvenile Court Aide, Service Coordinator, Banquet Captain Event Coordinator, and many others. Michael was known for his big heart and willingness to help others. He shared his time and talents with family and friends, often using his influence to secure them jobs for catering events.
Michael was baptized in Jesus’ name and filled with the Holy Ghost June 16, 2013, under the leadership of Bishop Calvin J. Gould, Sr. He served as an usher, sang in the choir, was an active participant with the Men and Pastor’s Aide Ministries until his health began to suffer. During services, Michael loved to praise the Lord. Often you would see him standing while accompanying the music with his tambourine or running laps around the sanctuary giving God the glory.
Michael was fun to be around. He was the life of the party at family gatherings. We could always count on his entertainment to make us laugh and smile. His original music compositions made him a family legend. Michael’s interests included singing, cooking, decorating, and playing games. He loved to laugh and at times, he would laugh so hard, it would make you laugh harder. Before his health began to fail, his desire was to attend culinary school to become a pastry chef.
