About our foundation

The Michael P. Daly Memorial Foundation was established in 2011 as a scholarship fund, in Michael’s memory, to provide scholarships to college students and prospective college students, affiliated with the Kansas City roofing, sheet metal and construction industries, who display a desire to earn a degree.

As the oldest of 5 children, Michael appreciated the importance of family.  His adventurous nature took him to many places in Europe where he met people who shared the same love for life, and willingness to accept everyone for who they are.

 

While Michael was just one of many relatives who represent the fourth generation of Daly’s at Kaw Roofing and Sheet Metal, Inc., he came to recognize the importance of relationships with manufacturers and their representatives, distributors, associations and our competitors.  Michael understood that opportunity only comes once but in many different circumstances.  Michael did not take his opportunity at Kaw Roofing and Sheet Metal, Inc. for granted.

Therefore in loving memory, the Board of Trustees of the Michael Daly Memorial Scholarship Foundation has decided to recognize those affiliated with  the construction/roofing/sheet metal industries who are in need of financial support to continue their education.

With this goal in mind, we look forward to your gracious support of our fundraisers to support those in need.

 

About Michael

Michael is the oldest son of John and Debbie Daly.  He is the older brother to Chris, Anna, Megan, and Liz.  He grew up in Overland Park, Ks, going to school at Corinth Elem. until 2nd grade, then Oak Hill Elem, Oxford Middle, St. Thomas Aquinas graduating in the class of 2001. After time at the University of Kansas he worked full-time at KAW Roofing and Sheet Metal as fourth generation while he attended business related classes at JCCC and graduated from Roofers Local #2 apprentice program.

 

Michael was known by his family and friends for his easy-going, genuine fun loving nature.

Although Michael spent his whole life in the KC area, he truly felt a longing to travel the world.  Some of his favorite places were: our Ozark lake home, Colorado, Miami, St. John, Virgin Island, Ireland, and Switzerland.  He had just returned from snowboarding the Matterhorn with a childhood friend a week before his death.

Michael was so proud to be an Irish descendant and born on the day before St. Patrick’s Day.  He loved adventure and learning new skills.  He taught himself to wakeboard, snowboard, play the guitar, and play golf among many other accomplishments.  He always looked forward to summers at the Lake with his family and friends that he loved so much. Michael was known for his compassion for others and one of his sayings was “don’t mistake my kindness as a weakness.” Michael was well liked and looking forward to his future whether that was in his career at Kaw Roofing and Sheet Metal or through his future travels and challenges on his “bucket list”.

Michael was a big fan of our local hometown teams.  He often was seen tailgating at Chief games, attending Royals games, and most definitely cheering on his beloved Jayhawks.  He was excited to be a part of the celebration on Mass Street when KU won the NCAA National Basketball Championship.

He also shared a love for fireworks displays with his dad and brother, always trying to get a bigger and better display each year at the Lake house.

Michael Patrick Daly, 27, passed away Saturday, February 5, 2011. This year we had a special fireworks tribute to Michael on the fourth of July.
