Michael “Mike” Jay Hamm, age 66 of White Cloud, Michigan, passed away in his sleep on September 13, 2020, at Faith Hospice, Trillium Woods, in Byron Center, Michigan. He walks with Angels.
Mike was born in Grand Haven, Michigan, on March 17, 1954, to the late Jay and Jacqueline (Hirdes) Hamm. He was born with cerebral palsy (CP). His parents were advised that Mike was developmentally disabled. They refused to accept that and insisted Mike receive a mainstream education without special treatment. He learned early in life that CP would not define him and that it would not place limits on him.
