MICHAEL DOWNS

DOWNS Michael Roy Downs, age 66, went to be with his Lord on Palm Sunday, March 24, 2013, after a long gallant battle against Cancer. His loving wife, Judith Leslie Downs survives him as does his sons, Michael Roy Downs II, Jerome Wayne Downs, Ronald Eugene Downs, five grandchildren, Austin, Jessica, Jessie, Kayla, and Brittany, Brothers Frederick Downs Jr. (Mary), Marc Edward Downs and Wayne Harrison Downs. Michael was preceded in death by his father Frederick Downs Sr., mother Helen Louise, sister Pamela Sue Angotti and brother Rex Steven Downs. Michael's boundless enthusiasm for life, family and friends enriched all their lives. A true patriot who served in the Navy on the USS America off the coast of Vietnam during the war and retired as a civilian at the Naval Air Station, Jacksonville, Florida, he will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him. Services will be held in the future. In lieu of flowers, make donations to in his name. Please Sign the Guestbook @ Jacksonville.com
