SN Michael Lee Hurst
Birth: May 17, 1947
Wayne County
Michigan, USA
Death: Nov. 18, 1992
Mason County
Michigan, USA

Michael was born; Michael Lee Graham at Riverside Osteopathic Hospital in Trenton, Michigan to Frances Lee Jenkins and Roy Graham. Michael never knew his biological father.

Mike was a beloved son, father, brother, nephew, cousin and friend. Mike graduated from Lowrey High School in Dearborn Michigan in 1966. He attended Henry Ford Community College Dearborn. He loved his country, and served Honorably for 4 years in the U.S. NAVY, European theater during the Vietnam era.

He was a fantastic entertainer, great guitarist and singer. Mike was a Elvis Presley impersonator and people loved his music. Mike had more personality and charisma than a hundred people. He was a special, one of a kind guy.

Michael would always speak his mind, nobody ever accused him of beating around the bush, or not telling it like it was. If you didn't want to know what he thought, you'd better not ask him! He was genuine, and brutally honest! He stood his ground whether you liked it or not! Mike was a true and loyal friend, and I love him for that!

We grew up as little boys together. He was like a real big brother to me. I was only 6 years old when Mike helped me join the Detroit Boys Club. He told the other kids "see this little guy? He's my uncle" - all the kids laughed - he was a bigger tougher kid at a whopping 10 years old. Yep, I was his 6 year old little uncle! I remember going to the Boys Club so many times and building a tree house together. Mike saved me from drowning one day when someone pushed me into 9 feet of water when I couldn't swim. I would have surely died that day if it weren't for Michael. I loved my nephew Mike so much! I'd like to think that I knew the real Michael. He had a heart of gold and was a deeply good and kind soul. Michael was the first one to take me to church one cold Michigan morning when were both little boys. We went to St. Hedwig Catholic Church in Detroit, it's also where he first went to school. I only wish that I could have helped mend Mike's heartache. He always seemed to have an unsettled, internal turmoil going on inside of his heart. He never realized how very much he was loved and I'm sad for that. He is loved and greatly missed. Mike needed people to really care in deeds, not only words!

Mike was only 45 years old when he took his own life!

Mike is survived by his mother, Francis, his sisters Darice, Kathy, and two daughters,Leigh Ann, and Beth.

Michael, you now have five Grandchildren; Brett Michael Davis, Gabrielle Lauren Davis, Tianna Lynn Davis, Steven Tobin and Stefanie Tobin. Michael, you have left a wonderful legacy buddy! You will never be forgotten!

Michael - you are really, really missed - and greatly loved!
