Michael was born in Waukegan in December, 1941, the son of the late Robert and Grace (nee: Wood) Donnelly. He graduated from Waukegan Central High School where, as a member of the ROTC, he showcased his drumming talent.
On September 10, 2000, he married Diane L. Rucinski.
Michael retired as a senior drafter at Abbott Laboratories after 35 years of employment.

Michael was gifted at etching, drawing, working with glass, air brushing, and photography. He was even creative with food and was a talented chef. Most important to Michael was his love of family and friends.
