PLYMOUTH — Michael L. Schwartz, 57, of Carriage Drive, Plymouth, passed away Saturday, Feb. 12, 2011, at his home, with his loving family by his side.
Mike was born Dec. 1, 1953, in Bluffton, Ind. to Lorin and Dorothy (Foust) Schwartz. He was their only child. Mike married Donna Heinrich Dec. 17, 1977, in Noblesville, Ind. Mike and Donna met while they were both teaching at Culver Community High School.
Mike began teaching in 1976 as a business teacher in the high school. He had been the sponsor of BPA (Business and Professional Association) for 20 years, and was on the Indiana state executive board. He was one of the charter members of the Maxinkuckee Players in Culver. He was involved with sports as the girls volleyball coach and announced the football and basketball games. He was meticulous with numbers and saved all of the stats, which he charted for the basketball games, through the years. He volunteered on work camp trips, which were sponsored through his church.
