Mike was a 1971 Greenwich High School graduate. He resided for many years in Brookfield, CT where he owned and operated a furniture refinishing business. Mike eventually relocated to Vermont where he spent many hours supporting others through their crisis and recovery process at Headrest in White River Junction. He later pursued a career as a licensed massage therapist, most recently at Spa at the Woods in Killington, VT. He was also a caretaker for a large estate and spent many hours volunteering as a Killington Mountain Ski Ambassador.
A true outdoorsman, Mike had many hobbies and interests, including hunting, fishing, gunsmithing, skiing, snowmobiling, and motorcycle riding and refurbishing. His early childhood was spent fishing on the Mianus River in Cos Cob, CT where he met his lifelong friend and brother in-law Bobby Sparan. He had a passion for woodworking, and most recently could be found spending many hours turning raw wood into beautiful works of art. It was through these passions, that Mike maintained deep connections with his family, friends, and community.
The family will accept visitors to celebrate the life of Mike at Graham Funeral Home: 1036 Boston Post Road Rye, NY 10580 from 1:00-4:00 p.m. on Saturday December 18, 2021. In addition, a celebration of life will be held in the spring in Killington, VT. In lieu of flowers the family has set up a GoFundMe page.
Mike’s most recent spiritual exploration allowed him to view death as a coming home; a new beginning rather than an end. Please celebrate his life and this new beginning with him.
