Obituary for Richard J. "Dick" Michaels

Richard J. "Dick" Michaels, 86, of Enfield, beloved husband of Marie (LaRose) Michaels for 63 years, entered into eternal peace Wednesday Sept. 11, 2019 at Parkway Pavilion. The son of the late William and Helen (Kennedy) Michaels, Dick was born and raised in Enfield, and was a lifelong resident of the community where he and his high school sweetheart, Marie raised their family. He served his country honorably in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict and was a member of the Tanguay Magill Post #80 American Legion. He was employed by Shelby Mutual Insurance Company for 28 years before retiring as Regional Manager. In his free time, Dick enjoyed family vacations at Cape Cod, day trips at Look Park, and Fenway Park, singing the “Come Along Boys” song with his grandchildren, golfing, woodworking, and assisting his kids with their many home renovations. Notably, he will be remembered for his quick wit, captivating ocean blue eyes, and instilling a solid work ethic in his children. Besides his wife Marie, he leaves six children, Kathleen Pellin and her husband Rich of Seminole, FL, Anne Seavey and her husband Arthur of Monterey, CA, Maureen Connors of Williamstown, MA, Rick Michaels and his wife Debbie of Sarasota, FL, Mary Ellen Michaels of Boston, MA, and Pamela Michaels of Broad Brook, and our loyal, dedicated dearest family member Fran Devine. He also leaves two brothers, Bruce Michaels and his wife Eileen of Enfield, Sean Michaels and his wife Roberta of Poway, CA , two sisters, Mary Beth Boucher and her husband Jack of Enfield, Sister Pamela Michaels (Sisters of Mercy) of West Hartford, sister-in-law Jo-Ann Michaels of Enfield, twelve grandchildren, one great grandson born this very day, several nieces and nephews, and a dear family friend Sister Sue Keefe (Sisters of Mercy). He was predeceased by two brothers William and Wayne Michaels. We are grateful for the love and support of our many friends, and staff at Parkway who so lovingly cared for “Pops”. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019 at St. Patrick Church, 64 Pearl St., Enfield. One hour of visitation will be held at the church from 9-10 a.m. Sat. morning prior to the Mass. Committal with military honors will follow at St. Patrick's King St. Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations in Dick's memory may be made to the American Alzheimer's Assn.,200 Executive Blvd S #4B, Southington, CT 06489, or to the Parkway Pavilion Recreation Fund, 1157 Enfield St., Enfield, CT 06082.

To the Michael's Family,
Marie and all so sorry to hear of Dicks passing. Please take comfort in the love that you share with each other and all that are fortunate to be part of the extended family. May you all find comfort knowing the Lord is there for you. I think often of the times at your home on Timberlane Road and the dinners before the Saturday PA Football game. Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.
