Michael was born on June 24, 1960, first son of Neil and Moira McKerral, in Campbeltown, Argyll, Scotland. Michael was a member of the Roswell 18# Masonic Lodge. He belonged to Her Majesty’s Scots Guards Pipes and Drums of the 1st Battalion Scots Guards, and became one of the Queen’s own Pipers. On leaving the Military he became a public servant, working for the Police Force in London and later in the Emergency Services.
He enjoyed golf, especially being on the course with his two boys, he loved a fine Scottish Whisky, travelling, socializing with friends and family, and nothing made him happier than meeting new people, who then also became friends. He was the type of person you had to meet just once, and you became friends for life.
Michael is survived by his wife Cathy, of the family home, three sons, Neil and his wife Kelly and grandson George of Bristol UK; Callum and Luke of the family home; his brother Martin of Campbeltown Scotland; cousins Kenneth and Ann McConnachie of Dumfries Scotland, and cousin Charles Graham of Poole, Dorset UK, as well as his many brothers from the Scots Guards.
