Thomas (Matt) Michel
November 29, 1963 to October 29, 2009
Our friend Matt Michel lost his battle with Leukemia in the early hours of October 29, 2009. He was president of tri-county ABATE and a member of BACA. He was an avid motorcyclist. He was also a community activist participating in many fund raisers and benefits. He was an iron worker who worked for Hussman for close to 20 years. He had many close friends and is survived by his sister Beth and Tony Cirami, 3 nephews and his mother and father, Gail and Glen.
We are organizing rides before the visitation on Sunday Nov 1st leaving at noon from Chariots of Fire. Viewing is from 2-9 at Baue Funeral Home on Jefferson St in Old Town St Charles. We are planning a ride in Matt’s memory at noon with plans to arrive at the visitation at 3.
Funeral services are planned for 10am at St Peters Catholic Church on 3rd St in St Charles. We are leaving at 8 am promptly from Chariots of Fire for the procession to meet the family at Baue and follow them to the church for the service. After the service, we will be following Matt to the cemetery.
A celebration of Matt’s life will follow the burial at Tattooed Lady’s in Moscow Mills. Please join his friends and family. If you are able, they are requesting that you bring a covered dish.
If anyone one has photos of Matthew, we are collecting them for Matt’s family. Please reply to this email with the photos attached. Also, memorial patches have made and will be available at the dinner celebration at Tattooed Lady’s after the services. There will be someone there to sew them on if you need.
As we said, Matthew was an avid motorcyclist and we want to remember him by getting as many bikes as we can to ride in his honor. Please join us if you can for one or both rides!!
