He was a life long activist and promoted civic participation in the political process.

Michael was proud of the 14 years of sobriety he enjoyed at the end of his life and all of the relationships that were repaired and strengthened as a result.

On July 1, 2017 Michael married his best friend, Paulette Mason-Bates.

Michael was preceded in death by his parents and his son, Deri Ray Buie. He is susrvivied by his wife, their 15 children, Talya M.
