Born December 19th, 1970 in Wilson, NC, he was the son of Susan Syfrett and the late Stephen Syfrett. Michael graduated from Milton High School in 1989 and enlisted in the U.S. Army, becoming an Army Ranger in the 75th Ranger Regiment. After his service in the Army, Michael attended Southern Illinois University at Carbondale where he earned a B.S. in Plant and Soil Science in 1995 before moving to Florida to start a career in Agronomy. As an agronomist, Michael went on to become a Sales Representative/Territory Manager, ASA Certified Professional Agronomist and Crop Advisor specializing in Plant Pathology/Phytopathology. Michael achieved a ranking as one of top 25 turf and ornamental representatives in the U.S. by Bayer, Crop Science Division and his reputation as an agronomist led to his selection as an Ambassador/Agricultural Delegate to China in 2010 by the American Society of Agronomy.

Mike worked hard to make his family proud, from his service in the Army to helping his father manage grain silos in Illinois while in college. Michael remained passionate about his service as a Ranger and sought to help soldiers wounded in service to their country. In his personal life, Michael was an avid golfer, outdoorsman, fisherman and hunter and spent much of his time in South Florida and South Georgia with friends doing what he loved. Throughout his life, Michael found solace in the Lord and worked dutifully to serve Him.

Surviving besides his mother, Susan Peters of Johns Creek, GA, are a sister, Stacey Syfrett-Serikstad and her husband Kevin of Dawsonville, GA; two nieces and a nephew: Leigha, Gavan and Lily.

Those wishing to honor Michael may do so via donations to the Wounded Warrior project in his name.
