Michael Daniel Walsh, 82, passed away peacefully in his home in Indian Land on Thursday, Feb. 22, 2018.
Born in Blue Island, Ill., to Bill and Carol Walsh, Mike attended Mount Carmel High School and joined the Marines upon graduation. After serving his country faithfully, Mike joined the food distribution industry with the Morrison & McCluan company and spent the rest of his career at Sysco.
In 1972, he became one of the first Eucharistic ministers in Pittsburgh and remained a faithful servant to God throughout his life. Mike was heavily involved as a volunteer with both the Society of St. Vincent De-Paul and the Bridge Over Troubled Waters organization, and embraced his role as a messenger of God by leading Pre Cana and Marriage Encounters. His infectious spirit enriched the lives of everyone around him and has inspired us all to live life with a kind heart, infinite generosity and a humble disposition.
Mike is survived by his beloved wife of 58 years, Katie (Kay); his children, William, Kevin and wife Mary Beth, Maureen and husband Jim Keefe, and Michael and wife Joy; his grandchildren, Brendan and wife Kendyl, Collin and wife Amanda, Dillon and wife Alex, Kevin, Chelsea and husband Seth Stake, Liam, Michael Daniel, Bridget, Gavin and Connor; his great-grandchildren, Townsend, Sullivan, Eleanor Hayes, and Donovan; and his sisters, Carol Raderstorf and Ida Mae Walsh.
In addition to his parents, Mike is preceded in death by his siblings, Danny, Pat Bohne and Colleen.
