CAMBRIDGE — Michael "Mike" D. Severs age 37 of Cambridge, formerly of Dennison, died unexpectedly while pursuing his passion of remodeling homes in Duluth, a city he loved, on Feb. 24, 2021.
Michael was born on Aug. 17, 1983 to Daryl & Janice Severs in Northfield. He spent his entire youth in that area of Minnesota. He graduated from Kenyon-Wanamingo High School, class of 2001.
