Michael was born June 5, 1991, in Salida, Colorado, to Susan and Frank DeBuano. He loved spending time with his family, friends, and dog Jax. He loved fiercely and he would make sure everyone around him felt welcome and that we all had a smile on our face.

Michael stole and touched the hearts of everyone he met. We all knew him for his contagious laugh, his smile that warms your heart, his dimples, his kind soul, his warm hugs, and the purest love you could ever receive. He was smart, artistic, charismatic, an entertainer, a loving son, brother, uncle, friend and so much more. He will forever be remembered, loved, and deeply missed by all the lives he touched.


Services will be held at Lewis and Glenn Funeral Home on Saturday January 12 at 11:00 AM. Followed by a celebration of Michael's life at Salida Elks Lodge.


The family will be celebrating Michael’s life by wearing colors and invite you to join us if you wish.
