Michael (Mike) Patrick Hannigan, age 59, died suddenly on Friday, May 28, 2021. He was born on January 5, 1962 to Bill and Florence Hannigan in Birmingham, AL. The family has lived in Homewood, Decatur and Birmingham. Mike graduated in 1980 from W.A. Berry High School. After attending Jacksonville State University, he began a 40-year successful career in the cable and fiber-optics industry. He is survived by his parents, Bill and Florence Hannigan; his wife, Heather Hannigan; his son, Billy Hannigan; his stepson Kyler Adams; his sisters Patti Hannigan, Debbie Porter (Todd), Lynn Lett (Brian) and Katie Hannigan; his nieces and nephews, Jason, Kristin, and Brandon Lett and Mallory, Chad (Emily) and Cassidy Porter; and many, many cousins, aunts and uncles. Through the years our family has enjoyed many trips and adventures and Mike made them all so much more fun. The nieces and nephews called him their 'funcle'. Mike was the life of the party, the person everyone gravitated to, was loved by many and never met a stranger. He had a huge personality, gave great hugs, loved BIG, and never parted without saying 'I love you'. If any of his loved ones were sick or hospitalized, he was there as an excellent caregiver. He was his parents 'favorite son' and his sisters 'favorite brother' and all adored their 'Bubs'. There will never be another MIKE. He was one of kind. He was a loving husband to Heather and together they made many memories and she will continue to honor his legacy. He was a proud and supportive dad to his son and a great mentor to his stepson. A funeral mass will be said at St. Peter's Catholic Church on Friday, June 4, 2021 at 2:00 PM with visitation from 12:30-2:00. Immediately following the service, a 'Celebration of Life' will be held where all can share stories of Mike. Until we meet again, you will be loved and missed.

I met Mike when he started working for Alabama TV Cable, he was a warehouse worker then. I saw him advance from there to being a supervisor with the cable company in Hueytown, Al. I traveled to Carrollton Georgia when he was the boss for the cable system there. Mike always liked to work with the construction crew when we worked in his Georgia system. Working with Mike was like a pick nick. The work wasn’t always easy but Mike liked to do it and sometimes,I hated to take the money because he made every job so much fun just by his presence.We ate a few meals at his home in Carrollton, when Billy was just a baby . He was always a great host . I have so many memories of working with Mike, space doesn’t allow me to share them . I loved working for and around Mike Hannigan and I will miss seeing him on Facebook. May he rest for ever in the blessed peace of Almighty God.

Mike was a wonderful man and neighbor. He sat with my best furry friend, Sallie, while I spent Christmas with my daughter. He loved Miss Sallie and I am so grateful for his friendship and and could always depend on both Mike and Heather. He will be missed tremendously.
