Michael Edmond Davies, car enthusiast, scooter guy, motorhead, bicycle boy, North High Polar Bear, proud homeowner in Northwood Park Historic Neighborhood University District and Renaissance man, took off his Earth suit May 3, 2007. Mike was the best partner, friend, husband, lover and knight in shining armor to Xenia Palus, his devoted wife and soul mate of 14 years. Mike and Xenia adored and treasured each other. Their relationship is special and everlasting. Mike's honesty, kindness, unique sense of humor, caring spirit, insightfulness and compassion are special treasures he shared with many.
