Michael W. Estey, 54, died on May 17, 2019, at his home in Palmyra.
He was born on April 29, 1965, in Manchester, NH, a son of Charles and Carole (Thompson) Estey Sr. He graduated from Pinkerton Academy in Derry, NH, with the class of 1984.
Michael, who was called Uncle Mike by so many, was the kind of guy who liked to be heard. He was loving, free spirited and enjoyed “making a scene” to get reactions from those around him. He was a true family man, loved spending time with his 5 brothers, grandchildren and children, and was “a momma’s boy”. He was a hard worker and really loved his job working with the crew (“the boys”) as a scaffolder at NIS/NES/NSS in Palmyra. He enjoyed camping, hunting and mechanics.
He is survived by his best friend and loving wife of 21 years, Anita Estey of Palmyra; children: Debbie Burrill and companion Heath Worthen of Corinna, Leon Moulton and wife Katelyn of Waterville, Jennifer Moulton and companion Jeff Tuttle of Waterville, Heather Estey and companion Christopher Kirsch of VA, and Nicholas Estey of NV; his parents, Charles and Carole Estey of NH; 12 grandchildren; 3 great-grandchildren; siblings: twin brother Matthew Estey of TX, Mark Estey and wife Lyn of NH, Chuck Estey Jr and companion Veronica Thomas of NH, Peter Estey and wife Rebekah of NH, and Perry Estey of NH; friend and mother of his children, Donna Estey of PA; his uncle, Robert Thompson of NH; loving sisters, Lou-Ann Estey and Kathy Estey; many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his maternal and paternal grandparents; his uncle Steve; and many other loved ones.
The family will receive friends from 2-4 p.m., Saturday, May 25, 2019, at the Shorey-Nichols Funeral Home, 191 Hartland Avenue, Pittsfield.
