In memory of the Reverend Michael M. DeBose.
| WHEREAS, The members of the House of Representatives of the 129th General Assembly of Ohio extend our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of the Reverend Michael M. DeBose in their bereavement; and|
| WHEREAS, Michael DeBose's zealous love of life and his selfless concern for the welfare of others distinguished him as an outstanding human being and as a leading citizen. Serving the 12th District of the Ohio House of Representatives for eight years, he sponsored legislation to ban talking or texting on cell phones while driving, to make cock-fighting a felony, and to support a higher minimum wage, blood screens for cancer, and a moratorium on foreclosures, and he was the chaplain for the Ohio Legislative Black Caucus. An associate pastor of Zion Chapel Missionary Baptist Church, he previously worked for the City of Cleveland, the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority, and the Cuyahoga County Sanitary Engineering Department, and he served as a member of the local school board. Without question, he was a dedicated and devoted public servant whose exemplary political career is an inspiration for others; and |
| WHEREAS, Michael DeBose's selfless dedication to the welfare of others distinguished him as an outstanding human being and a leading citizen. It is our sincere hope that his memory will be a source of comfort to those who loved and cherished him, including his wife, Cheryl, his three children, Shalimar, Michael, and Krystal, and his three grandchildren. His untiring efforts earned him the respect and esteem of many; and|
| WHEREAS, Michael DeBose will long be remembered for his kindness and his unwavering commitment to service. He led a remarkable life, manifesting those virtues we all seek to emulate, and his generosity, talents, and seemingly inexhaustible energy are a pleasure to recall; therefore be it|
| RESOLVED, That we, the members of the House of Representatives of the 129th General Assembly of Ohio, in adopting this Resolution, mourn the loss and salute the memory of a fine man, the Reverend Michael M. DeBose; and be it further|
| RESOLVED, That the Clerk of the House of Representatives transmit a duly authenticated copy of this Resolution to the family of the Reverend Michael M. DeBose.|
