Michael Phillip Burch passed away on Saturday, October 17, 2015, in Galveston, Texas. He was born October 21, 1974, in Galveston, Texas, and spent most of his 40 years on the island that he loved. Mike, or Burch as he was often called by those around him, had a love of cooking, loud music, recovery, and hanging out with friends. He easily made friends everywhere he went and attended many twelve-step meetings, often taking the time to help others along their journey in life.
Mike is preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Rose and Louis Fee, and his paternal grandfather, Norman L. Burch, Sr. He is survived by his mother, Ruby Ilene Fee, of Galveston, Texas; his father, Norman L. Burch, Jr., of Santa Fe, Texas; his brother, Matthew Burch, of Katy, Texas; daughters, Kailee Diaz, of Austin, Texas, and Zoey Burch, of Pearland, Texas; as well as many wonderful friends. Mike touched many hearts and was loved by all who knew him. He will be greatly missed.
