It is great sadness that I have to let you know of the passing of Michael Healy, our founder, beloved board member, and avid cyclist. We feel so very fortunate to have had him with us since the very beginning, and there is NO WAY Harbor to the Bay would be where we are today if it were not for his significant contributions.
Michael Paul Healy, age 72, of Holliston, died suddenly on March 6th, 2016. In his life he embraced family, the law, his faith and a passion for cycling, education, scouting, and sailing. He was married for 45 years to Catherine, and had three children (Michael, Heather Conway, Rebecca Iwerks) and nine grandchildren (Megan, Jackson, Erin, Savannah, Cambria, Alexa, Clare, Isabella, and Calvin). He is also survived by three siblings, Jack, Kathleen Lietz, and Trudy White.
Mike lived and practiced law in Holliston, Massachusetts for 44 years. Mike was a graduate of Michigan Tech, Suffolk Law and Andover Newton. Mike had a several careers beginning as an electrical engineer for Raytheon, a law practice in Holliston and studying to be a Unitarian Universalist minister. Mike was a lifelong supporter of the Boy Scouts of America. He was an eagle scout himself and then served on numerous local, regional and national scouting boards. Mike was an avid cyclist completing over 12 rides with the Harbor to Bay including his last ride in September of 2015. He was a man of high standards, professionalism and integrity. He will be dearly missed by many who knew him. A memorial service was held at the Unitarian Universalist Area Church in Sherborn, MA on Saturday, March 19th at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to Harbor to the Bay, P.O Box 990243, Boston, MA 02199 are welcomed.
