Heaven gained another beautiful angel….Michael Howard Monroe, 27, of Milford, passed away on March 29, 2018. The son of the late Deborah Monroe, Michael was born on February 19, 1991 in Milford, where he became a lifelong resident.
He attended Jonathan Law High School, where he became an amazing friend to many. He worked at several local businesses in the last few years, his favorite being his job working with his Pop at Traynor Auto Body in Fairfield. Michael had many different interests but he most enjoyed his music. He was an incredibly talented guitar and piano player, and liked to hang out and jam with his friends. His happiest times were spent with friends and family, and his beautiful son Noah. He had a special bond with his Grandma, who dedicated her life to raising him, and with his aunt Keri, with whom he shared many fun adventures. She lovingly referred to him as Shike Man. He also loved visiting with his Aunt Kim and her family in New York. Michael had a smile that could brighten the dreariest of days, and a sense of humor to match! He loved a good party and having a good time….he kept everyone laughing up until the end. He was a special soul that would help anyone, and would give his last dollar to anyone in need. He will be greatly missed by everyone that has ever had the pleasure of knowing him.
Michael is survived by his maternal grandparents, Richard and Linda Schmidt, who raised Michael since he was a young boy; his son, Noah Monroe; Aunts, Keri Johnston (Joe), Kimberly Lee (Robert) and Sue Monroe (Paul Boyle); his loving girlfriend, Michelle Maiers; and many great aunts, great uncles, and cousins. He was predeceased by his uncle, Gerald Monroe and his cousin, Daniel Macy.
