Obituary For Michael "Mike" Healy
Michael “Mike” J. Healy was called home on March 8th, 2022. He was a man of God, with a heart of gold. A Navy veteran who loved his country, baseball, football, fishing, camping, nature, and life.
Mike was no perfect man, but he served a perfect God, and he did so with love and compassion. He learned the best gift he could give was to love all those he met with a love he received from God; beginning with family, neighbors, and his faith community at Holy Spirit Church, Fremont.
Mike was a prayer warrior, taking a cue from St. Michael; if God willing, daily morning Mass with praying the Rosary after. He was a truck driver by trade, a career he always wanted to pursue from the age of 5. When he was out on the road, wherever he stopped to eat he would make the sign of the cross and prayed thanksgiving prayer before his meal. It didn’t matter if he was in a restaurant, at a drive-thru sitting in his rig, a rest stop when driving the longer hauls, or when returning late for dinner; he was always thanking God. His family recalls being out to eat with him when folks would come up to him and thank him for praying. He knew the little things mattered. His mom wrote in his baby book that before the age of 2, he would pray the sign of the cross without any words.
On March 8th 2022, a single light in this very dark world went out. But because of his love, and his discipleship, he helped ignite many other lights in his place. His mission was complete and his home in Heaven was prepared. In this his family finds peace knowing he is in a better place with a God who welcomes him with open arms. Michael, his good and faithful servant is at peace.
He leaves behind a legacy of love. Michael is survived by his mother, Louise, his son Christopher Healy, and grandsons Jackson and Thomas. His daughter Jerin Healy. His siblings Dianne, Rusty, Wes, Kathy, Debi, Karen, Art, Rick, John, and Noni, and many handsome and beautiful nephews and nieces. We will greatly miss his kind and gentle ways.
A Mass will be celebrated for him at Holy Spirit Church, Fremont, on April 1 (Friday) at 1 p.m.
Paralyzed Vets and Wounded Warriors are just two of the charities he supported, or give flowers to someone you love.
