Michael David Collett, age 40, of North Easton, passed away suddenly on Sunday, January 16, 2022 at his home.
Born and raised in Stoughton, his family moved to North Easton when he was in high school. Being the eldest was a formidable task, but he was up for the challenge, as he had his brother Steve as his wingman.
Mike was always ready to lend a hand, he made you feel welcome, but he liked being on the sidelines and watching and not being in the spotlight.
He had a passion for wrestling, especially enjoying watching WWE wrestling on TV as he was on the Wrestling Team at Xaverian Brothers High School. He also enjoyed watching the Boston Red Sox games, and had travelled to Philly and Baltimore games as well as Boston. He was a loyal New England Patriots fan, watching every game.
Mike loved camping, making yearly camping trips with his brother Steve, and long-time friends Sean and Moira, to Vermont. He developed his love for camping spending weekends at Sandy Neck Beach with his family and numerous friends while growing up.
After graduating from Xaverian Brothers High School in 1999, Mike went off to college. He attended URI, Massasoit, and Bridgewater State College. It was during these college days he became part of a weekly gaming ritual with friends. The table was cleared and their favorite game brought out, right up until the time of Mike's passing. Mike had a quick wit, a great smile, was a kind and generous person, always working. He loved hearing any so called Dad jokes, especially from his Grampa. He was a great guy.
We will always carry your memory in our hearts.
Mike is survived by his mother, Gail (Wade) Collett, his brother, Stephan A. Collett, both of North Easton, and his half-sister Kelly Ann Collett, his grandmother, Mildred Wade, his aunts and uncles Barbara Landon, Brenda Sestito and her husband Michael, and Gerry Wade and his wife Amy and several cousins and friends.
He was pre-deceased by his father, Albert F. Collett, Jr., and his grandparents Albert F. and Barbara (Blum) Collett, Sr. and Charles L. Wade, Jr., his aunt, Mary Alholm and his half-sister Barbara E. Collett.
