Michael was born at Grady Memorial Hospital in Chickasha, Okla., on October 10, 1978, to Cecil Sims and Carolyn (Thompson) Sims. He attended many schools due to his dad being in the military and moving around from state to state. He loved cooking, he was a fabulous cook and made magic out of his food. He was a very generous man who would do anything to help you out. Michael gave the best hugs and he had a smile that was contagious to everyone around him. His smile was a reflection of his heart. When he smiled, he showed you everything, a smile you would never forget. He loved building and fixing things. Michael was very protective over family and friends. He loved his Dallas Cowboys and the LA Lakers. He craved Chinese food all the time, any type of spicy food, he would demolish it. Michael enjoyed dancing and loved music. He liked going to the casino. He was the family comedian and had the best jokes to tell. He was proud of his Native Heritage, and where he had come from.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Caroyln A Sims, in 2016, and his grandparents.
