Michael Allan Ruth passed away on October 25, 2022, at age 76.
Born in Oswego, N.Y. on April 16, 1946, to Clifford and Margaret Ruth, Mike graduated from East Rochester High School in 1964, where he was active as an athlete, musician, and scholar. He received an appointment to the United States Naval Academy and graduated in 1968, when he was commissioned as an Ensign in the United States Navy. He served for 25 years in the Navy, 15 years as a schoolteacher, and then finally retired with his wife to their home on Keuka Lake. Mike was an exceptional man: a naturalborn leader, bright, caring, and adored by many.
He is survived by Barbara, his wife of nearly 54 years, his sons, David (Leticia) and Stephen (Angie), and his grandchildren, Christian, Casey, Eliana, Kyle, and Elizabeth.
