Michael Raby

I am a proud husband of 30+ years to my amazing wife Lisa and the father of three outstanding children. Hannah, Samantha, and Michael Jr. We are grandparents and enjoying every minute of it.

My family and I have lived in Surprise AZ for almost 20+ years now. We have watched Surprise grow and prosper into the City it is today. The name Berkshire comes from The Berkshires of Massachusetts where our family came from before re-locating to Arizona.

Lisa my beautiful wife has the patience of an angel and without her strength and guidance in good times and bad I would not have the strength to live the wonderful life I live.

My favorite sport is Baseball and favorite team in the Boston Red Sox. I enjoy going to spring training games in Surprise with my son as well as Diamondbacks games. I LOVE riding my Harley, enjoy music and playing guitar in my spare time. I like to play golf (if that’s what you call it). I have enjoyed watching the culture and philosophy change into a well-rounded baseball family.
