Michael Diven has died, according to a statement posted online on Aug. 19, 2020.
We learned of the deceased through the following tribute posted on social media.,
I’ve received the horrible news that Michael Diven has passed away. For those of you who don’t know, Mike was a member of the Brookline Area Community Council, our District 4 City Councilman and our 22nd District State Representative. Mike played a big part in the community and the city.On a personal level, I grew up with Mike. I have been a friend since the first grade. While we lost touch over the years, we still maintained a connection. We had a very special friendship circle that began at St. Pius and carried on throughout the Brookline community and life.I am an only child and always felt an extra special connection to my friends. They have always been more than just a friend. They have been my brothers and sisters, my family. Today I’ve lost a brother… R.I.P. Mike… My Brother.Many of you knew Mike, knew of him or knew of his dad Joey who was an absolute Pittsburgh legend.If you don’t know of Joey, google his name. Mike’s death was unexpected and came while he was fighting cancer. The expenses of that fight were immense and he has left three beautiful children behind. Please consider helping out the children and his family not only in honor of Mike, but also his dad.
Cause of Death.
