Grafton – Michael Paul Haggerty, 52, of Grafton, passed away May 7, 2019.
He leaves behind his wife, Susan Czajak; parents Claire and Paul Haggerty; sister Cathleen; brothers Stephen and John; nieces Anneke, Mia, Bridgit, Amelia, and Kiera; and nephew Ryan.
He was known affectionately as “Big Mike” and was a dear and generous friend to countless people.
Michael was blessed to have attracted many bright, curious, adventurous, fun-loving, irreverent and loyal people throughout his life. He grew up in Holliston, enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps, and served for a number of years in reserves. He enrolled in the University of Massachusetts-Amherst Mechanical Engineering program and rowed crew.
His work life covered a wide spectrum – from landscaping, car repair, entrepreneurship, software development to management consulting. He had a unique ability to be relevant and authentic in many settings.
Michael had many passions: his family and friends, his dogs, home projects, car projects, music, sailing, parties, and FUN. He will be profoundly missed and rigorously remembered.
Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend visiting hours Friday, May 10, from 4-7 p.m., at the Roney Funeral Home, 152 Worcester St., North Grafton.
