Birth: Feb. 14, 1948
Champaign
Champaign County
Illinois, USA
Death: Jun. 21, 1990
Toulouse
Departement de la Haute-Garonne
Midi-Pyrénées, France

Michael was born at Burnham City Hospital, Champaign, IL at 1:24 p.m. weighing 7 lbs, 2 oz. He was baptized on April 13, 1956 in the Latter Day Saints (Mormon) church, Grand Junction, CO. His father was named "Jesse Junior Peterson" (Jesse Jr. at birth?) but sometime before Michael and his older sister Dianne were born, had changed his name to "Robert Ryan". Michael apparently never used the Peterson surname during his life.

"In 1952 her son Michael had polio and was not expected to walk again. She did the Sister Kenny treatments on his legs and not only did he walk but ran and anything else a boy and later a man could do."

Excerpted from a eulogy read at the funeral of Michael's mother Corene in 1999.

At the time of Michael's death, he was living in an appartement at 45½ rue de la Providence in Toulouse, France. Click here to see photos of the apartment and the quartier - or neighborhood - where he lived.

Spouse Name: Pamela B Richardson
Location: Los Angeles
Date: Jan 1974

[Both of the above records refer back to the marriage in 1966; therefore, it should not be assumed that Michael and Pam remarried each other sometime between 1967 and 1974. T.N.]

According to an online source, Michael entered into a second marriage on September 6, 1969 in Philadelphia, PA. This marriage also ended in divorce. And there is the possibility of yet a third and a fourth marriage. Further details are unknown by me at this time. T.N.

Note: Buried August 6, 1990. It is unknown at this time if Michael's grave is marked or not. And it is possible that, at some point, Michael's remains were exhumed so that his grave could be "reused". This is common practice throughout most of Europe.
