Michael Ralph Hanscom, 72, passed away on Thursday, November 11, 2021 at Tidewell’s Englewood Hospice House. He was born in Ludlow, MA to the late Homer and Carol (Walker) Hanscom. He was employed by the Titeflex Corporation for 33 years as a warehouseman in the shipping and receiving department. Michael also served in the National Guard. Athletics and sports were one of Michael’s passions in life. He played soccer, football, baseball and basketball throughout his youth and all through high school. Later on he enjoyed many years playing the hot corner for the Village Lounge softball team. Golf became his passion in his later years which he shared with his son, Jason and wife, Sue. Michael and Sue always traveled with their clubs and enjoyed playing in many different areas of the country. As his children grew older, he began coaching youth soccer and basketball. He was a fixture at both of his sons’ games and later in life the games of his grandchildren. Michael was a consummate sports fan from his beloved Red Sox, Patriots and Celtics to UMass Basketball and golf. Michael loved to listen to music and had an extensive record collection. Throughout his life one of his favorite activities was seeing live music. Michael loved to travel with his wife and family to Cape Cod, Old Lyme, CT, Lake George, NY, Florida, California, Oregon and many tropical islands. When they retired they became snowbirds in Englewood, FL enjoying quality time with old friends and new. He is survived by his loving wife Sue Hanscom of Agawam, his two sons, Michael M. Hanscom and his partner Lauren Beaudoin, of Springfield and Jason Hanscom and his wife Beth A. Denoncourt of Agawam, his sisters, Jane Chapman of West Springfield and Janice Tindell of West Springfield and his cherished grandchildren Will and Kyla and many nieces and nephews. Sadly Michael was predeceased by his granddaughter, Audra.
