Michael Stevan Hamel. Age 43 of Wyandotte.
Beloved son of Patricia (Chester) Harris, Jr. and Stevan (Terri) Hamel. Loving brother of Raquel (Adam) Wilson, Aaron (Christie) Harris, Jessica (Dave) Brendel, Holly Hamel, Angelica Estrada-Harris and Andrea (Michael) Greer. Dearest uncle of Abram, Della, Ethan, Henry, Caleb, Olivia, Ira, Nora and Wesley. Also survived by grandparents, Patricia Owen, Kenneth B. Roche, Patricia Atencio-Allen and Ralph P. Atencio and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Preceded in death by grandparents, Dolores and William Ford, Anne Hamel, Raquel and Chester R. Harris, Sr. and John C. Owen.
Michael was many things to many people. If you are reading this, he may have been your family member, your friend, or maybe even just an acquaintance who touched your life during a brief encounter.
To us, he was so much: Loving, loyal, kind-hearted, witty, and steadfast in his care for others.
Michael had a single passion in life, and that was his family. Spending quality time with his parents through visits, e-bike rides, sharing a meal, or simply talking on the phone is what made his heart happy.
The roles he cherished most in life were being a brother and an uncle. The light in Michael’s eye shined a little brighter with the birth of each niece or nephew. We are heartbroken that his time with them, and vice versa, was cut decades too short, but we are committed to ensuring they know how much their "#1 Uncle" cared about them and how much each of them meant to him.
Mike was a man of faith and we find peace knowing that he had a relationship with his Lord.
We invite you to share a memory and or photo on Michael's Tribute Wall below. We find comfort in reading the tributes and it brings us great joy knowing how Mike impacted your lives.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are appreciated to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.
