In memory of
Michael D. Wade
Wade, Michael D. Grand Rapids, MI Michael D. Wade, age 77 of Grand Rapids, passed away on July 25, 2020. Mike was a scholar, an avid reader of the great classics, and a true gentleman. He perhaps will be remembered best as a loving father, an extraordinary companion, and a loyal friend. Mike earned a B.A. in Philosophy in 1965 from Kalamazoo College and then entered the U.S. Army to serve his country in Vietnam. Following his service, he completed his M.B.A. in 1972 at Western Michigan University, and earned his J.D. in 1974 from the University of Toledo College of Law, where he was Valedictorian and Editor of Law Review in 1973- 1974. He was admitted to the Michigan Bar Association in 1975 and completed his law career with Garan Lucow Miller, PC in Grand Rapids. Mike wrote several legal books for Michigan ICLE including The Michigan Law of Damages and Civil Procedure During Trial, as well as over 20 articles on Damages, Evidence, Ethics and Civility published in various legal and law school journals. He also briefed and/or argued 6 Michigan Supreme Court Cases and over 40 Court of Appeals cases during his legal career. He spoke at bar association and client seminars, taught Trial Techniques, and served as an Adjunct Professor at Cooley Law School. Hockey was Mike's passion. He was a huge Red Wings fan and held front row Griffins seats for years. Mike loved Talk Radio and his music choices ranged from Shostakovich to AC/DC. T.S. Eliot and Russell Kirk were two of his favorites. Mike will be deeply missed by his children, Michael Wade and Jennifer Wade; his long-time partner, Lynn Beatty; and his aunt and uncle, Gordon and Marilyn Willis. The family will greet visitors on Tuesday, August 4, from 6 - 9 pm at Stroo Funeral Home, 1095 68th Street SE in Grand Rapids.
