Michael Gravelin, 67, peacefully passed on Sunday, June 8, 2014.  Born February 24, 1947 in Detroit, Michigan to the late Helen and Noble Gravelin.  Michael spent most of his life following his passion for music by traveling and performing throughout the US and many parts of the world as an entertainer on both land and sea.  After retiring to The Villages in 2006, his love of music prompted him to form The Hampton Singers, a Village resident guitar and singing group.  These musicians, singers, and friends brought him so much joy, challenge, and satisfaction.  He so valued the time spent with them over the past six years.  Michael is survived by Ellen his devoted companion of 18 years, brothers, Patrick and his wife, Sue Gravelin of Scottsdale, AZ and David and his wife, Jan of Port Charlotte, FL and sons, Jeff  of North Carolina and Joshua of Michigan.  Private Services will be held by the family.

    I just learned of Michael's passing and am very sad to hear about it. I had the pleasure of playing in one of mike's many bands, The McLains Trio with he and his then wife Terri. We spent a year on the Sky Princess in the Carribean around 1990/91. Michael was definitly a class act and we had many adventures cruising the islands that I'll cherish forever.

    We will miss Mike's humor,musical talent, and leadership. He was an inspiration to us and will always have a warm place in our hearts. We are glad to have had the pleasure and privilege to have known him. We will always remember his wonderful smile.

    Ellen and family,
    I am so sorry to hear about Mike's passing. He will be sorely missed, especially on Wednesday evenings. I joined his singing group a year and a half ago. Inspite of my lack of talent, he was always friendly and encouraging. The Hampton Singers will not be the same without Mike. I am hopeful that the group will continue in his memory.
