When he was about 3 years old, he was diagnosed with Tuberous Sclerosis. His parents made the difficult decision to have him become a patient at the Nebraska State Home in Beatrice, NE where he was a resident until 2010. At that time, he was accepted into Region Five Rehabilitation Center in York. He was an absolute blessing to all that came in contact with him. Michael loved cars, music, traveling and Reese’s Peanut Butter cups.
He is survived by his mother Beverly Vaught of Henderson, his siblings; David “Kim” and Virginia (Dougherty) Vaught; Nancy (Vaught) and husband Curt Friesen and Rick and Cheryl (Zastrow) Vaught all of Henderson. Brad Vaught and Kimberly Fritz of Grand Island, NE, Kevin and Kimberly (Daily) Vaught, Todd and Chris (Sadd) Vaught all of Aurora, NE. Many nieces, nephews and cousins also survive.
Michael is preceded in death by his father, David C. Vaught Jr.
