Obituary - Michael Tabiano Sumbi

Michael Tabiano Sumbi, age 39, of Harker Heights, Texas passed away on Tuesday March 7, 2023.

Michael was born in Cebu City, Philippines on April 13th, 1983. Michael and his family moved to Raymore, Missouri when he was a child. He attended Raymore- Peculiar Schools his whole life. Michael made the move to Texas in 2017.

No matter where Michael was, he made friends instantly. He had a remarkable ability to connect with people. Michael was an avid pool and poker player. He liked to say, he ran the table! Let’s be honest, most the time he did! An unrelenting advocate for being who you are and doing what you want. 

He was beloved by everyone who ever met him. A best friend to all walks of life. No matter the circumstances, you’d always leave with a story of something funny/crazy Mike did while you were with him.

Michael faced so many challenges with his diabetes, which ultimately lead to other health conditions. Even during the hardest times and biggest obstacles he was a fighter, he was brave and stayed positive.

He leaves a huge hole in the hearts of his family and friends who were always entertained by his stories and hilarious sense of humor.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Elvira Randall.

Michael is survived by his daughter, Dakoda Sumbi; two brothers, Jonathan Sumbi and David Randall; two sisters, Christina Sumbi and Mary Dorothy Vernaglia; three nieces, Anderica Beguin, Margarette Sumbi and Abbigail Vernaglia; one nephew, Lucas Randall.
