Michael Lodl


Known as “Mehow” in Poland, Michael Lodl died on July 7, 2020.

There was a candlelight vigil in Newhall Park a few days after Lodl’s death to memorialize him. More than 200 individuals attended the memorial service for Lodl’s family and friends, and their remarks were as poignant as their numbers. Anyone who visited could readily observe how Lodl had a profoundly good effect on the lives of many of its participants.

We will never forget Lodl as one of our greatest warriors. He used to play goalkeeper for the school’s boys soccer team. During his freshman year, he was instantly promoted to the junior varsity team and then to the varsity team for his sophomore year. At Hart, Lodl wasn’t just a soccer player; he also competed in the boys’ tennis team as a freshman. Lodl was a lifelong sports fan, and his teammates felt his passion for the sport. It was said that Lodl’s inherent talent and taught skill made him a vital part of their squad at the vigil.

Lodl was also an outstanding academic performer from a young age. Numerous honors were given to him for his achievements in the classroom, and he even entered mathematics competitions during his early years of education. Upon arriving at Hart, Lodl continued to excel, taking up AP classes and displaying an interest in math and physics. Lodl’s academic prowess and hard work helped him become a successful high school student, just like his athletic aptitude.

“Mehow” Michael’s Family and friends are mourning the loss of Lodl, but his positive influence on his interests, education, and relationships will never be forgotten.

At the event, more than 200 people recounted their memories of the 17-year-effect old’s on Heart High School and the surrounding community, from students to adults, teachers to friends, family members to classmates.

Lodl, whose first name was pronounced “Mehow,” was characterized as athletic and intellectual, entertaining, kind, and always ready to brighten a friend’s day by randomly giving them the music he had recently heard or had recently discovered and appreciated.

Staff members at the school spoke about Lodl, the student, at the candlelight vigil. They described Lodl as an outstanding student who excelled in mathematics and physics.

All sports, from basketball and baseball to football and even soccer, have been praised by his former teammates for his innate athleticism. Several others mentioned how they developed a close relationship with Lodl due to his love of video games, board games, and astronomy.

It was reported that, even though they enjoyed binge-watching “Star Wars” movies and going to the gym together, Lodl stood out in all other endeavors.

In a sad accident, Michael died on July 7, 2020, at the age of 17. Everyone who knew and loved him is in a state of grief that cannot be adequately expressed in words. A genuine buddy, Michael was both compassionate and amusing. He excelled in sports and academics while attending Hart High School. Michael was a caring and cherished son and brother, beyond all else. I don’t think I could find a more bonded family. All of us will miss him greatly.

His family has permitted this campaign to be put up to help them with the unforeseen expenses they are facing at this difficult time. Thank you for whatever contribution you can make.
