On Saturday, December 29th, 2018 Michael W Venables Jr suddenly passed. He died of a massive heart attack, at the age of 37, leaving many heartbroken.
>>> Mike was born on February 20, 1981 in Chester, Pennsylvania. He grew up loving basketball, baseball, soccer, and his town of Eddystone, where he was often referred to as Mad Max. He was a graduate of Ridley High School’s class of 1999, and was known for his high intelligence, thus joining the gifted program. He got so much joy from being a role model for his younger brothers Kyle and Garrett, even accompanying them on class field trips.
>>> On July 7, 2007 he finally married his soulmate, Mandy Hall. In doing so Mike fully committed to assist raising her four daughters, Samantha, Courtney, Mandy Lee, and Angel Hall. Nothing in life brought Mike more joy than his son Michael J Venables. MJ was truly his heart and soul. Mike was known for his quick, subtle wit, unique laugh, and compassionate spirit.
