Michael A. "Shorty" Foland

Michael A. “Shorty” Foland, 57, passed away with his mother in a tragic, accidental house fire at his childhood home on September 23, 2020. Michael was known as “Shorty” by his family and friends. He loved his family, horses and working on the farm he grew up on. His nieces and nephews would always look forward to getting candy from Uncle Shorty. He was very generous, and that generosity was shown even in his last moments on earth. He died trying to save his mother’s life. Shorty was preceded in death by his father, Curt Foland and his mother, Wilma J. Foland, who perished in the house fire with him. He is survived by his sister, Patricia Phillips; brothers, Kenneth and Randy Foland; as well as other family members including uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews, and many other family members. Shorty’s kind spirit will live forever in the hearts of family and friends. He will never be forgotten.
