bullet  General Notes:

ZIN: Michael B. Comm, MBA, PhD 78 years, peacefully at home on August 24, 2006. Beloved husband of 44 years to Phyllis (nee Craigmyle). Loving stepfather of Andrew Douglas Chant and Mary; Peter David Chant and Kathy. Grandfather to Jessica, Colin, Victoria, Andrew, Catie and Sarah Chant, and great grandfather to Isabel. Brother of Olga Semeniuk, Stanley Zin & wife Olga, Eugenia Fee & husband Joseph, and the late John & Anastasia Zin. Also survived by many nieces and nephews. Michael graduated from the Assumption Business School in 1955 as part of the very first graduating class. After achieving an MBA from University of Michigan and a PhD from Michigan State University, Michael spent virtually his whole career as part of the Faculty of Business Administration at the University of Windsor. During his 9 years as Dean (1974-1982) he oversaw the Faculty's growth from 660 to over 2200 students. He had a lifelong commitment to service and was very active in leadership roles within such organizations as the Grace Hospital Board, Goodwill Industries, Rotary Club of Windsor, and the Certified General Accountants Association of Canada. Michael and his wife Phyllis were honored last fall by the University of Windsor for their many contributions to the life of the University by being awarded the prestigious Clarke Award. One of the major areas of impact was through their Scholarship Fund which supports many students each year at the University.
