Michael Benjamin Prothero

West Point, 1964

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Bob Magruder on February 13, 2002:

Mike Prothero has left our ranks after a long bout with ALS. We just learned today of his death by way of Mike Cook. Dan Evans and John Murray will be in contact with Tina to let us know the details on the funeral soon. We expect a burial at Arlington in the next 3 weeks. More will follow soon.

Mike has been a real inspiration to the class with his long term fight with ALS. Fortunately he retired in 1996 from his position of leadership of the Military Order of Purple Heart and was surrounded by
his children and grandchildren during this past 6 years.

"Be at peace" Mike, you deserve the very best.
