I just learned of Mike's passing yesterday. I am so sorry for your loss. I was one of Mike's professors in the Speech Department at Wabash College. In fact, Mike and I began our Wabash journeys in the same year. If memory serves I had Mike in two classes. Mike was a kind soul, thoughtful and caring, with a good smile and sense of humor. When Mike was working at Wabash I went on an admissions trip with him to Fort Wayne--it was an excellent trip with good conversations about Wabash, sports, and life. I will miss him.

He took me out for dinner a few times and I remember coming to campus and he showed me around and showed me

Mike was an incredibly special man. He had a true gift for putting anyone at ease within moments of meeting them. Bigcat, as I affectionately referred to him, was as genuine a human being as you could ever hope for, while remaining completely open-minded and accepting of all individuals...except for hoosier fans. He'd tell me the same stories over and over again, but it seemed like those stories just seemed to get better and better every time I heard them.

Mike and I met when we both worked for the Ft. Wayne Fury. He was a college intern, and I was just finishing high school, awaiting my move to Ball State. I remember when we were both back at school he invitied me to a dance at Wabash. We had so much fun! We were connected from the beginning and had a bond that lasted throughout the years ahead. Even after college and I made my move to Indy, then

We grieve fir the Owens family. It is hard to find the words to say during this tragic time, but when Mike became absent from the body, he became present with the Lord. Mike's family will be in our prayers for many days to come, and we will ask the Lord for healing within the Owens family.
God be with You all,
Doug and Stacy Fry

Tim and Libby,
We are saddened to hear of Mike's passing. It has been a long time and those pictures brought back memories of our visits many years ago. Maggie and I would like to offer our sympathies on behalf of all of the Hunckler's.
