Miguel enjoyed riding his motorcycle, horse riding, hunting, and going to the shooting range.  
He was good at singing and even sang the first song for his wedding, and sang at the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption.  
He loved watching brain time, funny videos with his daughter Isabella, and they would both laugh so hard, sometimes even trying hard not to laugh to see who could hold out the longest.
He loved nothing more than time spent with his family, especially his beloved children.
