He was a certified electrician and previously worked for Jarden until his retirement. He later met Linda Davis, who he joined in marriage on December 9, 2017 at the Spring City Baptist Church, where they attended together. Michael enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, fishing, and black powder rifles. He had an avid interest in science and was a ham radio operator. He was a skillful guitar player and loved to play with family and friends.

Survivors include his wife, Linda Westfall, of Neosho; one son, Joshua Westfall, and his wife, Kacee, of Joplin; one daughter, Angela Westfall Fuselier, and her husband, Eric, of Garfield, AR; two sisters, Cheryl Ramos, and her husband, Tony, of Joplin, and Patsy Dannelley-Murray, and her husband, Steve, of Carl Junction; and three grandchildren, Dylan Westfall, Arrow Sue Fuselier, and Celese Hacker.
