McCloskey Jr. and brother John F. III (Barbara) McCloskey. Michael is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
Mike loved to play golf and watched as much of it as he could on TV (as much as Marilyn would let him!). He especially enjoyed playing golf at Myrtle Beach on his vacations. He also liked working around the house and there was nothing he couldn’t fix. He loved being and grandfather and loved his new great-grandson, Richard. He will be missed by everyone.
