Michael T. O’Connor passed away May 29, 2020 after a tough fight against cancer. He was born October 10,1964 in Wadsworth, Ohio to Fran (nee Logar) and Michael O’Connor, where he lived his whole life. Mike was a dedicated employee at the Sterling Paper Company. He was a 1983 graduate of Wadsworth High School where he was an outstanding athlete. Mike was known for his love of the number 20; it would have only made sense that he rejoined our Lord in the year 2020.
Mike was preceded in death by his father, Michael J. O’Connor; and father-in-law, James Moss.
He is survived by his wife, Teri (Moss) O’Connor; mother, Fran O’Connor; mother of his children, Mia (Hahn) O’Connor; children, Cory (Kelsey) O’Connor, Alicia O’Connor and Brianna (Sam) Hayes; brother, Dave (Ing) O’Connor; and grandchildren, Clark O’Connor and Amelia Hayes; nephew, Will O’Connor; niece, Devanne O’Connor; and mother-in-law, Betty (Knauss) Moss.
Mike was a friend to everyone he met. You could always count on him to help you out or be there whenever you needed him. He loved his family, and he especially loved being called “Papa Mike”.
