Michael attended Chicopee schools and graduated in 1955 from Chicopee High School and Western New England College in 1963 with a B.S. in mechanical engineering. Michael also served six years in the Army National Guard from 1961 to 1967 where he earned an honorable discharge. Michael loved the beach, fishing, boating and playing Texas Hold Em with his family and friends from the Elks and Eagles Club. He also enjoyed visiting the casino and watching sports. He loved his “muscle cars” and hot rods. Michael was always happy and always had a smile on his face.

Michael’s first job was at Dickerman Company in Springfield. He also worked for Spaulding in Chicopee, Hamilton Standard, United Technology and had his own company called P.E. Associates where he designed many types of machines. He retired from General Dynamics in Texas and did small jobs for Young International during his retirement.

Michael will be sadly missed by his two daughters, Joanne Murray and her husband, Jim of Ludlow, MA and Susan Kane and her husband, John of Westbook, CT, six grandchildren, Justin, Jonathan, James and Jordan Murray and Ethan and Lauren Kane. He also leaves two great grandchildren, Jonathan, Jr. and Kennedy Murray and his former wife, Dolores Chaban. “Mikey” will also be sadly missed by his Baytown friends of the Eagles Club, especially Carol Martinson, who was like a daughter to him and all of his friends and coworkers.

A calling hour will be held on Tuesday, October 6, 2020 from 9:00 to 10:00 am at the Cierpial Memorial Funeral Home on 69 East St. in Chicopee Falls, followed by a Liturgy of Christian Burial in the Basilica of St. Stanislaus at 10:30 am.

To a fantastic guy! He was a very caring person and always was there to help when anyone needed it. My most funny thing I remember was the remote to the tv’s at the Eagles. He always wanted to know where they were and had two or three sports programs going. Mike you will be deeply missed. RIP our friend.
