Mike & Michelle
Chris Doherty, owner of 1st Step Sober House, has confirmed the sad news that Mike Fine passed away suddenly this morning from natural causes. He was pronounced dead around noon at the hospital.
Mike was in multiple courtrooms every single day for at least the last ten years, helping people with drug and alcohol addictions through the program he owned, Primary Purpose, and 1st Step, for which he served as Senior Director. In recovery himself, Mike led by example, having put together all the pieces for a successful life after the usual ravages incurred by substance abuse and addiction. Trusted by judges and prosecutors alike, his word was his bond.
Mike leaves a toddler son, Alton, and his wife Michelle. He was 49 years old.
Drug Court graduation ceremonies tomorrow afternoon at 4:00 PM in the jury room will honor Mike, and memorial service information will post shortly.
Rest in peace Carolynne Williams
