Michael Sean Lavenant(- - 2012)

Our beloved Michael Sean Lavenant, 42 years old, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday morning at his home in Camarillo.

Michael has resided in Ventura County since 1996. He graduated from Cal State Fullerton, and went to law school at Southwestern University School of Law. He was a partner at Landegger, Baron, Lavenant and Ingber.

Michael will always be remembered having a smile on his face and the profound effect he had on everyone he met. He was a very compassionate, kind and giving person who was greatly involved in the Camarillo Community. He was a devoted, loving father and husband. Michael will always be in our hearts and deeply missed by everyone.
