Mike was a Great young man, when he was in high school there were challenges and the staff at Ayer high were always Fair and caring even when mike was being a teenager. We As his Parents NEVER made excuses for mike actions I think everyone is missing the fact that because of his choices in his school years it made it harder for him in life But he also learned a great deal About life in adulthood. Mike was doing great he had started a business that he took pride in he was caring and a great person. I As mikes father knew all of mikes teachers and Mr Parker and Miss Daisy I was at the school many times,
Please The staff did not trash mike they simply told the truth If more parents would deal with there kids in a stern manner instead of blaming "the system" Maybe more kids would turn out like mike he had a sense of values and learned nothing is free in this life he learned The hard way that YOU and only YOU can make the difference in your life. Please no More negative comments we are burying our baby this weekend. Ayer high had a big impact on mike he had grown into a fine caring young man.
Thank you

Not how did he die, but how did he live?
Not what did he gain, but what did he give?
These are the units to measure the worth
Of a man as a man, regardless of birth.
Not, what was his church or school, nor what was his creed?
But had he befriended those really in need?
Was he ever ready, with word of good cheer,
To bring back a smile, to banish a tear?
Not what did the sketch in the newspaper say,
But how many were sorry when he passed away.

Every one has negatives about them, but some are not for the public. especially in a time like this. How could you write about something so awful like this knowing what his parents and family are going through.
His parents and family? What about that chick he crippled and possibly killed by negligently driving the snowmobile?

The fact that he is remembered by several teachers as being a discipline problem are links in the chain of events leading up to this crash. Had one of the links been broken, this crash wouldn't have occured.

Someone loses there life in a tragic accident...
Just because the driver of the snowmobile didn't intend to kill himself and possibly his passenger, that doesn't make this crash incident an "accident".

I wonder who was the registered owner of the snowmobile? If it's the parents, they are probably not going to be "buddies" with girl's family once the civil process starts.

Saddly, any one of us could be involved in a tragic incident similar to this one while operating a car where someone else is seriously injured or killed. This type of thing happens daily. What I am surprised about is how come you never hear much about the lawsuits that occur after such crashes.

How can any of you who dont know him judge him like this. If you knew how much he was loved, if you knew how many lives he touched, and if you knew how it felt to lose your son, thewn you would all shut your bad words down. Michael was Michael and for those of us who were blessed, I mean blessed to have been part of OUR life, then you would know truly what he was all about. No more negatives please, hearts are broken enough. To all who love michael, he will always be with us no matter what. Our hearts are broken. Please let my family grieve and do not judge. We will always love you michael. We will always be with you Joan, Brian, Jess & Danny. LOVE NEVER LEAVES US- it's always there in our hearts.

what the hell is wrong with you- why are you bothering to write here. Your words are dispicable- we already feel for Michaels friend & her family- what the hell is wrong with you. You obviously didn't know michael, and you obviously do not care that his parents, sister & brother just lost their son/brother, nor did you even see that over 1,000 people who loved michael came to pay their respects to his family. Stop writing shit. You are heartless garbage.

OMG people. What brillant people you are, writing such bad things about Michael. You Danny D should shut your mouth. You think you know everything by reading an article? I'll tell you something you obviously don't know- having a heart. Can you even fathom how the family and friends feel- can you feel the heartache, the tears- obviously not. Any one of you who writes negative things about michael should be ashamed-better yet as someone else put it, take a look in the mirror. STOP WRITING HURTFUL COMMENTS. We are mourning the loss of someone who was truly loved by many people. Maybe all of you should just think about how prescious your lives are, and when you are gone, think of all the pain your family feels. Stop judging, stop assuming, and stop making stupid comments about something obviously you do not even know about.

just to clear the air! The family of jennifer was at mikes wake and funeral just as upset at the losss of a fantanstic PERSON! So before you jump to conclusion why don't you get your facts straight! Please stop writing you're negative comments because you know nothing! You read an article that can be taken differently to everyone! Like mikes father said they never made excuses for him. He did make his mistakes as a teenager. I was there to see him make them and I was there to see him learn from them. Now his whole family and all his friends are trying to cope with this traggic loss! It was an accident.. No matter what any of you want to call it that is what it was. Mike would never have gone out and intensionally hurt himself or jen(or anyone else) he was not that kind of person. So before you continue to judge why don't you get ur facts straight and try to walk a mile in our shoes!! Because we will never be the same having had such a wonderful person and friend come into and go from our life way before his time!

Snowmobile crash ruled an accident
SHIRLEY — Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone’s office announced yesterday that the investigation into Sunday’s fatal snowmobile crash is closed and that it has been ruled an accident.
Michael O’Clair, 21, of Shirley, died at the scene after the snowmobile he was driving along the right-of-way for overhead power lines between Mount Henry and Leominster roads went off a sharp embankment, crashed into tree limbs and fell 40 feet.
His passenger, Jennifer Testa, 26, of Pepperell, was listed in critical condition yesterday at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester.
A Leone spokeswoman, declined to discuss details.
Police found a helmet near Testa, but did not find one for O’Clair at the crash scene. State law requires that snowmobile riders wear helmets.

.

Are you kidding me?! Everybody has & has had flaws & mistakes but we learn from them & from experience it's true you do learn to fix & mike did good thongs & he may have made a couple mistakes but it's his choice to make not yours. We remember him from the good memories so please take your negativity else where. Thank you. R.I.P Mike
