He was a resident of Thornton, Colo. On Oct. 2, 1955, Mike was born to Russell B. and Beverly J. Hollings-worth Hummel, Jr. in Akron, Ohio. Mike worked for Ball Corp. for the last 16 years, and was recently employed as a Senior Technology Specialist.

He is survived by his mother, Beverly; stepfather, Jack Lemmon; and ex-stepfather, Harold McElroy; brother, Russell B. (wife, Stacey) Hummel; sisters, Sandra (husband, Joe) Vitone, Cheryl (husband, Mike) Musgrave, Karla Hummel, Toni (husband, Tim) Wright, Coleen (husband, Dennis) Sweazy, Maureen Anderson and Lerrynn Hummel; 20 nieces and nephews; 12 great-nieces and nephews. Mike's father preceded him in death. In our memories he will always be known as Wolfgang Humerstine, the uncle who would make you eat worms. Mike's favorite childhood memories were fishing, hiking and digging the Gorge, the Cuyahoga River.

A memorial tribute will be held at the Gorge Metro Park, as Mike requested, located at 1160 Front St. (the main entrance), on Monday, July 9, 2007 at 6 p.m. Come and share your great memories of Mike.
