home in Nathrop, Colo.,
from pancreatic cancer.
He graduated from

in 1958, from Michigan
State University in 1962
with an accounting degree and from
Wayne State Law School in 1969. He prac-
ticed law in Michigan at both Highland

Legal Aid from 1971-72 and was a tax pre-
parer in San Francisco prior to moving to

He was an avid outdoorsman, climbing,
hiking and biking in the glorious Colorado
mountains; and he swam nearly every day
for 19 years at the Mount Princeton Hot
Springs near his home. At the time of his
passing, he was under the care of Living
Waters Hospice of Buena Vista.
A short memorial service and celebration
of his life, on a date yet to be selected, will
be held in Telluride, where his ashes will be
scattered at several of his favorite places.

Michael of Berkeley, Calif.; numerous niec-
es, nephews, grandnieces and grandneph-
ews and cousins in the greater Detroit area.
