WILMINGTON, MA — Michael J. Haas, age 43, of Wilmington, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on July 28, 2017.
Michael was born on May 20, 1974 in Winchester, MA; he was the cherished son of John W. and Donna F. (Lloyd) Haas. Michael was raised in Wilmington, attended Wilmington Schools and graduated from Wilmington High School.
Michael, known to most as simply, “Haas,” was known for his quick wit, sarcasm and unrelenting comedic sense of humor. Haas was multi-skilled in construction, as well as carpentry. From the time he was a young man, it was very clear that Haas was naturally adept in mechanical and industrial trade work. He went to work with his Dad, John, in iron work and steel erection. He brought the silly and the skill with him to the job site. This was helpful in keeping the moral of fellow co-workers high and everyone smiling.
Among his many talents, Haas was most well-known for his love of music. He co-wrote lyrics, sang and mixed songs, as well as played guitar for the group, Type 4. Type 4 toured across the country in the late 90’s. Haas never lost his love of music and spent countless hours playing his guitar. His family and friends will forever remember his licks and riffs, along with his authentic smile and contagious laugh.
Michael was the devoted father of Ariana and Kayla Haas-Breslin both of Everett and Addison Haas of Wilmington, cherished son of John W. and Donna F. (Lloyd) Haas and dear brother of Daniel J. Haas of Wilmington. Michael is survived by his partner Sharon Dalio and her son Andrew as well as many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Family and friends will gather for Visitation at the Nichols Funeral Home, 187 Middlesex Ave., (Rte. 62), Wilmington on Friday, August 4th from 3:00-6:00 p.m. immediately followed by a Funeral Service at 6:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, Memorial donations in Michael’s name may be made to a charity of one’s choice.
