Devoted husband, father, son, brother, and friend Michael Patrick Hamill ’83 died suddenly on January 1, 2021, of apparent heart failure. His love for his family was abundant, and his warm smile, deep laugh, playful sense of humor, inherent kindness, and wise counsel touched all who knew him. Michael married Wendy Heavner in 1995 and they had three children together. The couple shared a love of travel, music, and new adventures. A lifelong athlete, Michael shared his passion for sports as a long time Little League manager and AYSO youth soccer coach and referee, enriching the lives of many Culver City youth. After graduating from Santa Clara University and earning his CPA, his career went from public accounting, to the film and music industries, and financial consulting. He worked for many years as a CFO in the music industry, becoming a member of the Recording Academy, and even managing a hip-hop record label and reggae artist Eeka-Mouse along the way. Michael was very involved in Culver City civic affairs, serving as the president of the Chamber of Commerce in 2013, and volunteering for many city advisory roles. He is survived by his wife, Wendy, son and daughters, mother, and siblings.
