Memories & Candles
Its so hard to put into words when a friend is lost, and to add to the grief is the suddenness of the loss and the unknown reason for their passing. I don't think that anyone can ever share a story about Mike that is not a positive or comical one. He was such a nice and genuine person to everyone he met. Its hard to choose one specific memory to share, and I know that the NS family has

Dear Owens Family. When I met Mike I was immediately attracted to his outgoing personality and infectious smile. As I'm sure was the case for all who knew him. He was a wonderful and genuinely kind and loving person. When I met you all, his family I could see why. I will miss him dearly.

Dear Tim and Libby,
We were so saddened to hear of Mike's death. Our sympathy and prayers are with you. Joel told us that Mike had passed away. We all have such fun memories of him and the good time our boys had with him, especially Joel. May God give you peace and comfort as you draw near to Him.

Getting to know Mike my senior year at Wabash was definitly one of the highlights. Having a person who was a legend from his days there was inspiring. I miss you Mike. IHSV!

Mike Owens played a key role in me matriculating at Wabash. I met him during my junior year of high school when he visited as an admissions counselor for the school. From there I maintained correspondence with him. Thanks to his candidness about Wabash, I am Little Giant with great pride.
Thank you Mike for helping me make one of the best decisions of my life.

To Mike Owens #34 with the big heart, great sense of humor and silky smooth jump shot you will be missed. We will continue to share your memory when we get together by reminiscing about the times we shared with together! I still remember the night I took my wife on our second date to Leodis's house for cards. It was quite the second date but she loved your sense of humor so much that she told me later that

I knew Owens well through our years at Wabash and I don't have memories of him other than those with a smile on his face and enjoying himself and his Wabash brothers. From the first time we met I knew he was a great guy and he was always comfortable in whatever situation he was presented. My condolences to your family, and from the the memories submitted from all over the world, it is easily seen what an impact this great man had on the lives he touched.

Tim, Libby, Man, Magel Bagel, and Bill,
I can't begin to tell you how sorry I am to hear about Mike. I'm so lucky to have been able to call this spectacular man my best friend for so many years. We had a unique and special relationship that I'll cherish forever...along with the fun times we spent together and all our glorious memories. Through all the tears, a smile or giggle sneaks in when remembering my dear friend because he could
