Obituary - Daily News
Michael Howard Minger, age 19, died from a dorm fire at Murray State University, Murray, Ky., on Sept. 19, 1998.
Michael was a music major at Murray State University and a 1997 graduate of Niceville High School. While at Niceville High School, he was a member of the Latin Club, the student council, and Bible study club and excelled in school music programs. He earned a spot singing in the Pensacola Symphony and earlier a place in the American Boy Choir. Dr. Bradley Almquist, director of choral activities at the university said, "He adored opera and loved to sing and aspired to be an anchor on the campus television station and eventually become a sportscaster." The Rev. Carolyn West, vicar of St. John's Episcopal Church near the campus, said: "Michael was a faithful member, always friendly, and had a wonderful excitement about life who will be greatly missed from our church family."
Michael is the son of John and Gail Minger, and twin to his sister, Melissa, and grandson of Wilson and Faye Minger of Niceville.
His funeral arrangements include lying in state from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m, Tuesday, Sept. 22, in the nave of St. Jude's Episcopal Church, corner of Aurora and Highway 190 in Valparaiso. He was an active member of St. Jude's. A memorial Eucharist and burial will be conducted at 4 p.m. at St. Andrew's by the Sea Episcopal Church in Destin by the Rev. Arnold A. Bush, rector of St. Jude's, and the Rev. Dave Dabria, former rector. Liturgical functions will be done by members of St. Jude's and faculty from Murray State University Music Department.
The family has asked in lieu of flowers that memorials be mailed to the "Michael Howard Minger memorial Fund" at the Compass Bank of Niceville. An appropriate memorial will be decided at a later date.
McLaughlin Mortuary is in charge of arrangements.
