Michael Paszek Obituary

Michael Francis Paszek, born February 28, 1958, son of Marguerite Boyle and Michael Frank Paszek, passed away peacefully on September 9th. His wife of 37 years, Ellen Bokina Paszek and daughter Jenna were by his side at Brigham & Women's Hospital Shapiro Cardiovascular Center in Boston, after a prolonged hospitalization. For the past 20 years, Michael battled Hodgkin's Lymphoma twice, atrial fibrillation, congestive heart failure and the complications related to these conditions. Micheal was a warrior throughout this time.

He attended Hatfield schools, Holyoke Community College, University of Massachusetts Amherst and Northeastern University concentrating in business and finance. Michael was an Eagle Scout and an active member of the Hatfield community, serving on a variety of town government boards and committees.

He started his working career on the farm in Hatfield. He was integral in working with his uncles on the Boyle Tobacco Farm for years. Michael worked in several business managerial and consulting capacities, most notably at Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Associates, Inc., his wife’s practice in Northampton.

Michael’s greatest joy was raising his daughter as she was the major priority in his life. From coaching her youth lacrosse teams to being her biggest fan watching her playing both field hockey and lacrosse at the college level. He also enjoyed traveling, trips to the beach, swimming, cooking, reading, watching New England sports teams, and spending time with friends and loved ones.

He leaves a lasting impression upon his family and friends of his toughness and ability to endure and make the best of whatever life brought his way. It was his wish and his family’s, to acknowledge and thank all those involved in his care, doctors, nurses and all the allied health professionals who worked so hard on his behalf.

Michael is survived by his loving and devoted wife Ellen, daughter Jenna, and sister Mary Ellen Tacy. In lieu of flowers please, donate to the gofundme (Fundraiser by Jenna Paszek : Mike's Battle with Cancer and Heart Failure ) ( https://gofund.me/b31358db ) set up for the family.
