Michael Osborne M.D.

OSBORNE Michael Roy, M.D., died suddenly on January 27, 2014. He was 56. Michael's life was one of continuous service to others. As an Emergency Physician and a Fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians (FACEP), he healed thousands and, as Associate Professor and Director of Ultrasound Education at Yale School of Medicine, he taught hundreds of medical residents and other healthcare providers the wonder and fragility of human life. As a Lt Col in the U.S. Air Force (Reserve), he served our servicemen and women as a teacher and flight surgeon. A man of towering physical and intellectual stature, he never turned his back on a sick person or forsook the opportunity to teach his co-workers both the art and science of medicine. He is remembered for telling the worst jokes in the world. The morning of his death, Michael studiously pursued his Spanish lessons in hopes of donating his talents to underserved in other countries. Michael's family was the center of his life and heart. He leaves behind his beloved wife Catherine Engelke Osborne. He was predeceased by his wife Molly (Register) Osborne, the loving mother of their children, Nicole Osborne Long, Steven and Teresa Osborne. Michael is also survived by his mother Jeanne Slocum Osborne, his brothers Duane and Robert Osborne, and three grandchildren - Jack, Nathan, and Olivia Long.
