CARMEL – Michael Kilburn Lucey passed away Oct. 6, 2012, at a local hospital after a short illness. He was born June 18, 1949, in Gardiner, son of Philip F. Lucey and Mary Ellis K. Lucey.
This proud Irishman leaves behind his beloved children, son, Ryan of Bucksport; and daughter, Erin of Bangor; as well as brother, Patrick and wife, Susan, of Rockland; brother, Matthew and wife, Vicki, of Portland; his mother of Carmel, and his former wife of 27 years, Catherine of Hermon.
An avid Red Sox fan and lifelong birdwatcher, Michael graduated in 1971 from the University of Maine at Orono with a Bachelor of Science in Education and English, taught junior high English in Calais, wrote and published Maine Birdlife (one of Maine’s first local bird count magazines), and worked in both construction and finish carpentry until retirement. In recent years, one of Michael’s favorite hobbies was researching genealogy, including reconnecting family members across the states at a reunion in 2006.
