Pastor Dies in Hunting Accident

21 November 2003

MUNSTER -- A pastor at Family Christian Center, Sonny Michael, 45, was killed in a hunting accident on Wednesday morning in Fulton County.

Michael, an avid hunter, fell after a 13-foot-high deer stand he had climbed on for better surveillance collapsed.

"He was just a fanatic about hunting," said David Jordan Allen, the church's public relations director. "We lost a very important pastor at Family Christian Center. We are just at a loss for words."

Michael spent 17 years at Operation Care, the church's food pantry, which also supplied clothing and emergency funds to families in need.

"He would feed over 450 families a week," Allen said. "He did a dynamite job in filling people's needs. He would make sure they had plenty of food and clothes. He would also dig deep into his own pocket to help the needy. He was a giver of his time and talents, an encourager of those who hit rock bottom."

Michael had two children, Brandon, 20, and Kim 19. He and his wife, Linda, live in Schererville.

"He was a fabulous father, everyone loved him," said his daughter, Kim. "He was such a comedian, he could even make you smile on a bad day."

Funeral services for Michael will be held at 11 a.m. Monday at Family Christian Center. Visitation will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. and from 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday at Lincoln Ridge Funeral Home, 7607 W. Lincoln Highway, Schererville.
