LaBarge, Michael "Mike" COLONIE Michael "Mike" LaBarge, 61 of Colonie, passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, December 24, 2020. Born in Albany on October 24,1959, he was the son of the late Joseph and Helen LaBarge. Michael attended Colonie Central High School and shortly after began working at the Colonie Hannaford where he spent the majority of his career. In addition to his work at Hannaford, Michael was a volunteer fireman for many years at the Fuller Road Firehouse. On his days off, Michael enjoyed hunting and fishing with friends and family locally, and in the Adirondack region. Michael was an avid bowler for many years where he developed lifelong friendships. He was also a loyal New York sports fan and enjoyed watching the Yankees and the N.Y. Giants with a cold Heineken in his hand. Michael will be extremely missed by surviving brother Peter LaBarge; and sister Renee LaBarge, brother-in-law Scott Bergin, nephew Patrick Bergin and niece Kathryn Bergin. Michael was a friend to everyone he met and will always be missed. Michael's wish was to be cremated, and his remains will be buried with his parents following a small service in the spring. Over the years, Michael adopted cats and had a special place in his heart for all rescue animals. If you feel compelled, please make a donation to The Capital District Humane Association in Michael's honor.
