Michael Allen Crouch ’58 was born in San Mateo, California, on October 17, 1935, the youngest of Stanley and Madeline Crouch’s six children. His family moved to the Westwood section of Los Angeles, California, just a few years later. He attended St. Paul the Apostle Grammar School, Loyola High School, and the University of Santa Clara. His career was in the flavor and fragrance industry, having worked for many years with his father, who brought both his sons into the business.

Mike is survived by his brother, Blaine, and sister, Joaun; his wife, Lori, and their son, Patrick; Mike’s son, Michael Lee (Karen), and daughter, Cami (Paul) — children from his previous marriage to Nancy Hunydee (deceased); four grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, and a wonderful abundance of  nieces and nephews, and other relatives.

On Tuesday, October 18, he joined his mother, Madeline, father, Stanley, and three sisters, Jacqueline, Patricia, and Jeanne, who predeceased him. He died in Tucson, Arizona, in the loving company of family members.
Mike’s humor, kindness, and compassion made him beloved by all who knew  him.
