Passing of a Former Croomie: Miguel Javier Figueroa Marzan

To Our Crooms Family,

It is with a heavy heart that I report the passing of former Croomie Miguel Javier Figueroa Marzan. He would have been part of the Class of 2012. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the right rear tire blew out on a vehicle Miguel was a passenger in in the early morning hours of Friday, January 10th. The vehicle overturned several times and Miguel did not survive the accident. The driver and other passenger remain in serious condition.

While I cannot personally speak to the type of person Miguel was, Class of 2011 graduate Amani Chyrstale has been gracious enough to allow us to share her heartfelt memorial for Miguel: http://diaryofabg29.blogspot.com/2014/01/we-only-part-to-meet-again-rip-miguel.html.

Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Miguel,

Frank C. Bracco
Class of 2006
