Michael Buonauro was a college student and successful web-based cartoonist. Some of his work included ‘Dr. Lobster’, ‘Wrench Farm’ and ‘Gamer Hotties’,
co-authored with his good friend Jeff Lofvers. Michael was very proud of his graphic novel 'Marvelous Bob' which he completed just before his death. It is a story about a man who wants to be ordinary who faces extraordinary events. Michael's parents hold the copyright for 'Marvelous Bob' and plan to publish it in Michael's name.

Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among ages 25-34

Adults have the highest number of suicides

Michael’s sense of humor and depth of character were evident in everything he did,
including his work, which focused on the fun, absurd and humorous.

Michael attended Windermere Elementary, Lakeview Middle, St. Andrew’s Catholic School, Bishop Moore High School and the University of Central Florida.

Michael wanted to be remembered as "a writer, a dreamer and your friend in time."
