Michael S McCall, Class of '68 has passed. Born May 12, 1950 in Columbus to the late Lynn and Georgeann (Owston) McCall, shuffled off this mortal coil on January 12, 2023. Michael grew up in Columbus and Worthington and was affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America Troop No 140. He graduated from Worthington High School in 1968, of which he was a proud alumnus. He attended ITT Tech in Dayton, graduating in 1970, where he honed his craft. He is survived by his daughter, Ashley, siblings Scott (Tracy), Lynn II, and Leslie (Rodger) Ressa, nieces, and nephews. Michael’s family and countless friends and colleagues will miss his laughter, unique sense of humour and perspective, contagious attitude, and thoughtful discussions. Michael was the epitome of cool: from his knowledge across music genres to topics like theology, cooking, rollercoasters, numismatics, among so many others, demonstrating the wide scope of his interests and his ability to appreciate life. His passion for exploration lead him to Saudi Arabia, where he lived and worked for two years. From there he travelled the world including Thailand, Hong Kong, Hawai’i, Bahrain, England, Mauritius, and Mexico. He also saw the world from above, during his skydiving ventures; he was fearless. Not only did he truly live life, but his talents and skills were incredibly diverse, from playing a mean pinball (and building them) to challenging his mind with puzzles of all sorts to being a master model builder and tinkerer. However, above all, Michael S McCall, Architect, was central to who he was. Words cannot convey his love for the discipline. His passion for architecture was his core identity and it permeated throughout all aspects of his life. In 1990, he became a member of the Architect Institute of America, and remained so until his death. If he wasn’t working, he would be in the kitchen jamming out to music cooking his famous wings, experimenting with Mexican food, or making batch after batch of his tailor-made Chex Mix. He found such joy in bringing this happiness to others.
