Michael was with Darren LeFerve on their way to school when they were involved in a bad car accident. Both passed away.
Jon Curtner (1979)
There weren't a lot of people that knew Mike. He was quiet, mature beyond his years and, determined to become an Ohio State Buckeye. I knew Mike better than most; we were good friends. His and Darren's death hit me hard. We were all teammates in soccer and I was the first call that his sister made the next morning asking if I knew where they had been and informing me of the accident and their deaths. I remember that to this day like it just happened and I know that I catch myself thinking of him from time to time still -40 years later. I still miss you Brother but I know you are around.
