Mourners remember the man who is lost in Lake Michigan. Friends and family of 47-year-old John English held a vigil where he went missing.

English went missing Sunday afternoon when he jumped head first into the lake off a boat near Grand Haven. The Ottawa County Sheriff's Office says that English appeared to be struggling and passengers aboard threw him a life ring but wouldn't reach. He then went underwater and didn't come back up. English is presumed drowned and although his body hasn't been found funeral arrangements have been made. English was a medic and instructor at Life EMS Ambulance in Grand Rapids.
