Michael Dreiling was born on Sept. 1, 1995 at Imperial, Neb. He was the oldest of two children born to Rick and Dawnya Shafer Dreiling. Michael lived in Imperial until his family moved to Grant, Neb. in 2004 and he was presently a junior at Perkins County High School.
Michael was active in his school and the community. He served as an altar boy at Mother of Sorrows Catholic Church.
