November 20, 1957 ~ September 18, 2020

Born in: St. Louis, Missouri
Resided in: Torrance, California

Michael (Mike) Sebastian III passed on September 18, 2020 just weeks shy of his November 20th birthday when he would have been 63 years old. He passed peacefully at home with family. He is survived by his wife of 28 years, Carmen, two children, Kendall (Erick) and Nikolas, two stepchildren, Ryan and Eric (Jennifer), two grandchildren, Molly and Garrett, parents, Mike and Annette, and sister, Michelle.

Mike was an almost lifelong resident of Southern California and enjoyed the history of the area collecting postcards and maps. Following his father’s footsteps, Mike worked at Hughes for many years before working with different defense companies in the South Bay. He was a cat lover, avid writer and reader, enjoyed connecting with old friends and talking to new people.

A small memorial will be held at a later date with friends and family. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to NPR in Mike’s name, as this was the soundtrack to his life.

  1. candle 1So sorry to read/hear of Michael’s passing in this morning’s Daily Breeze. Although we went separate ways (college/families) after high school, we spent considerable time together in our elementary and high school years in the bands playing trumpet and hanging out together. He always had that smile on his face and a very friendly person that everyone enjoyed being around. My best to all of his family and friends during this tough time.

  2. So sorry to hear of Mikes passing. We knew each other in high school. And after over 30 years reconnected a short time. Reminded me of what a good natured guy he was. My condolences to Carmen and Nick. And rest of family
