Socks Memorial Fund

Michael Cavanaugh (“Socks” ) was killed in a hit-and-run Sunday night as he was leaving the Motor City Muscle Festival in Detroit, MI. 

No holding back. Socks was an original. Always down to whip it out. A bit misunderstood at times but, he would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.   

We want to ease the financial burden that comes with losing someone so suddenly. This fund will help take care of funeral and cemetery services.
