Boating Accident Victim Remembered by Loved Ones
A Manistee man who died early yesterday morning is remembered by his loved ones. Michael E. Bachus of Manistee lost his life yesterday morning as the charter boat he was a passenger on collided with the south pier in Manistee just after 5 yesterday morning. Mr. Bachus is a retired Sergeant Major from the United States Marine Corp and a veteran of the first Gulf War. After several years of service as a corrections officer, he retired last month. His wife and three daughters were kind enough to speak with 9&10 News about the kind of person Michael was, describing him as a very active outdoorsman, and a man who had a very loving side. Funeral arrangements are being made and a service is expected to be held at the Methodist Church in Manistee.
