ELKHART — Michael R. “Old School” Hamby, 66, of Elkhart, left us Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013.

He leaves behind a stepmother, Loretta Hamby; a sister, Vickey Moore of Eddy, Texas; and three sons, Micahel R. II (Ginger) Hamby, Steven S. Hamby and Justin Hamby, all of Elkhart.

He was preceded in death by his father, Marion; his mother, Edna; and brother Danny.

He was an avid football fan and lover of sports in general. He also took great joy from animals — especially dogs. His dogs would accompany him most places he would go.

Michael was usually the life of any event or gathering, and he will be greatly missed by many. His upbeat outlook and personality were a natural magnet to many.

Elkhart Cremation Services will handle any forthcoming services.

There will be a celebration of life from 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13, 2013, at Michael’s Restaurant, 528 Harrison St., Elkhart.
