I remember you as a junior high student. You were a great student and very easy to like. You were fairly quiet, always tried your best, and had a great future ahead. You will be missed, but a bigger plan has been charted for you and we will meet again.

Michael...You brought happiness to all of us. We had lots of laughs. I was fortunate to spend time with you through my nephews (Tyler and David). We had good times at Indian Lake. Our daughters adored you. The last time I saw you you gave me a big hug. I wish I would have kept my arms around you forever. Our world is a darker place without your smiling face, but Heaven is now brighter. Thank You Mikey for helping me see more happiness around me. You will be missed. My deepest sympathy and prayers to the Tepe Family. I am truly sorry for your loss. You raised a wonderful young man. Rest In Peace my Friend. We all truly loved you.

I will remember Michael for his warmth and his ease. The photo is perfect. People were drawn to him because he enriched their lives with his way. We are less blessed with his loss but blessed to have encountered him and known him. Deepest sympathy to the Tepe family and all those who Michael touched. Words seem so inadequate in this time of sorrow.

To the Tepe Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time. Michael played football with our sons Eric and Tyler Damian. I recall him as a wonderful athlete with a killer smile. Reading all the posts and seeing all the pictures on Facebook let me know just how special he truely was. God must have a plan for Michael that is better than his plans here on earth. I hope that through faith you will find some confort in that. Celebrate his life, for he hada great one. We will continue to pray for all of you.

I'll never forget meeting Michael and Molly when Julie Ruscello, who lived right across the street, babysat our children and all the kids would play together. What CUTE Michael and Molly were, and so adventurous and talented, Molly with her artistic flair blossoming at such a young age and Michael already showing the skills and speed that were the precursors to his success in every sport he played. Years later, I had the opportunity to have Pete, Michael, and Molly in class at Springboro High School. What beautiful, independent, talented young adults they had become. Bill, Sherry, Pete, and Molly, I am so, so, sorry for your loss. Michael's beautiful heart, soul, and memories are imprinted on you and everyone he knew. He was well loved and has left us all with a little more cheer and warmth in our hearts because we knew him. You brought a beautiful young man into this world and he will not be forgotten. God bless you and comfort you only as He can do during this time.

We will always remember how he lit up the room with his smile.. Our heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to Michael's family and dear friends.

I could never thank Michael enough for the friendship he has given me, but more importantly, my brothers. I've been blessed to grow up around a wonderful group of boys, and Michael being one of them. He never treated me like "Tyler's little sister.." and I was more than blessed to have him as a part of my life. I will truly miss his smile, and his unforgettable laugh. You could never have a bad time if you were with Michael, and the memories he has made with my family will never be forgotten.

"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love"

We all love you Michael. You are deeply missed.

My favorite memory of Michael is on Christmas of last year, 2012, with Mike, Molly, and a few other best friends of Mike. We spent the night singing and dancing at a new local spot in Springboro. It was the best night with the best group of people. That's actually the last memory I have with Michael since I live in Florida and do not get to come home often. I am so glad I have that to keep forever. When I heard the news my heart was so heavy and in so much pain. My heart ached for his parents, his brother, my dear friend Molly, and all those who were very very close to him. I am praying and will continue to pray daily for strength and healing to the Tepe family. Isaiah 41:10 "Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand".

I feel privileged to have been able to meet Michael as a sixth grader in my class and then to watch him grow into a vibrant young man. I always enjoyed running into him around town, always getting a big bear hug and a smile. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and with his tight-knit crew of friends. No words can take away the pain, but I hope you can find some comfort in the wonderful memories you have. He will be never be forgotten! With love, Sarah Jung

Bill, Sherry, and Molly,

Always the best memories were shared growing up in Springboro with you all. Peter, Michael, and Molly always showed a sibling bond that was as strong as I had seen and it is always a delight being near you and your family. I will always cherish growing up in Springboro and you are on my mind and in my heart always. Sending extra love and prayer to you and yours through this difficult time. I am always near by if you need anything. Michael was always there with a smile whenever you saw him, I am sure that he is brightening the heavens and smiling down at all of us.

Much love.

I would like to take this time to say how sorry I am for your loss. Michael was a well respected and much liked student here at the Mount. Being a non traditional student, I found Michael to be very respectful. He will be sadly missed here and at home I am sure. Continued prayers to the family and all that knew Michael. Do not forget that in any storm the Lord is always close by, holding us up and giving us strength.

My family was lucky enough to meet the Tepe Family about twelve years ago. Some of my fondest memories of my son include Michael. They played on a soccer team which became more like an extended family. My son believed Bill hung the moon. I never knew at the time how much joy it would bring me to remember those chest bumps. Seeing Michael's smile as they grew up at various places always made my day. "What a sweetheart" I would always think or say. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Tepe Family.

We look forward to the time we will be united with our loved ones again. The Bible tell us at John 5:28-29, that this could be true. It read as following: (John 5:28, 29) (28)  Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice (29)  and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.

Michael's personality and smile that could warm a room. His competitive nature was infectious to those around him. His incredible athleticism is how I first met him, but as a coach what made me most proud of him was the great person he was and how he treated people. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. Thanks for all of the great memories Tepe.

Our Dear Michael, one of our "other sons", words cannot due justice to how you touched our family in so many wonderful ways! From simple laughs at the house to wonderful lake visits, you were always the one with the heart of gold and smile as bright as the sun.
Thank you for being such a special person to our dear daughter Devin and watch over us all, reminding us daily to live with a bounce in our step, smile on our face and most importantly, love in our heart for all we come across on our individual journey...just as you did!

We love and miss you dearly!!

Mike, or as the boys called him, Tepe- was an outstanding young man. He was personable, funny and as charming as he could be in a "ahhh, heck...no bother, glad to help" sort of way. You just wanted to pinch his cheeks...and I did on many occasions. He was wonderful friend to my son, Keegan. And for that, we will be forever grateful. Talk about the ultimate friend! Tepe even took a long weekend off work to help move Keegan's sister to North Carolina...even after seeing the fully packed truck. What a trooper. My heart is broken, as is with all who knew and loved Tepe. Michael, you will always be remembered and truly missed. Your easy going nature and that contagious smile. We thank the good Lord for providing us so many opportunities to have shared our lives with You. You made a difference. Our prayers are with you and your family.

My best memory of Mike, is when he used to walk up the street to our house to shoot hoops with my son Chip. You would have thought they were the 2 best pro basketball players in the world.They would spend hours just shooting, and shooting, and messing around with each other. I will forever miss the ever present smile!

My favorite memory of Michael is when him and Molly were babies on 4010 West Fork and they would have their faces up against the sliding glass door looking out in the back yard

I met Michael when I first moved to Springboro in 2005. He became one of my very close friends and has remained that way since. I can't remember a time when he was ever upset or in a bad mood, he was always happy and had a personality that was contagious. I will never forget all the times we shared together, especially the vacations we all went on together. I am so happy I met him and that our group of friends has such an unbreakable bond. I will remember Michael in the way I know he wants everyone to, with a smile on his face and a light in his eyes. I'll miss you every second of every day. You are all in my prayers.

I had the privilege to be Michael's resource teacher for several years in elementary school. He always had such a great attitude, big smile on his face, strong work ethic and a compassionate heart. I was so sad to hear of his passing and will keep his family and friends in my prayers.
