MICHAEL D. CASE (1944 - 2017)


The Class has received word that Mike Case died April 9, 2017. Click here for the PAW Memorial.

Mike came to Princeton from Arcadia High School, in Phoenix, following his brother, Claude ’64. At Princeton Mike roomed with David Dollenmayer and belonged to the Woodrow Wilson Society. He was a philosophy major, and like David, he took a year off from undergraduate studies, graduating in 1967.

David recalls Mike as a night owl, Johnny Carson addict, and consummate poker player. A true westerner, Mike spent his summers working as a cowboy.

Like his brother Claude, Mike spent his career as an executive in the family tire business, at that time the largest wholesale tire dealer in Arizona.

In addition to Claude, Mike is survived by his wife of 23 years, Victoria Lupei-Case who supplied the photo below. The Class extends its deepest sympathy to them and to Mike’s entire family.
