Michael J. Orshoski, 1960-1993
Pictured above is Michael "Mike" Orshoski at the Bay View Park in 1966. Mike was the oldest son of Cliff and Barbara (Lindsley) Orshoski. Like so many youngsters who lived in Bay View in the 1960's, Mike loved to play Little League baseball. The picture was taken by his Aunt Joyce.
Mike loved life, as did his father. He worked as a sales representative for Resort Exchange Systems, of Moline, Illinois. Sadly, Michael J. Orshoski was killed in an automobile accident in Ashtabula County, Ohio on November 21, 1993. He was buried at Restlawn Memorial Park in Huron, Ohio, near his mother Barb, who had died in November of 1983. (Restlawn Memorial Park is now known as Meadow Green Memorial Park.) Mike was survived by his father, two sisters, a brother, and four children.
