Michael Macdonald

Michael “Mike” Macdonald from Troy NY left this world suddenly on January 31, 2022 at the age of 45. 

Mike was born in Marlboro MA on December 8, 1976. He went to Troy High school and was the son of the late Eltie and Robert Dufresne. 

Those who knew Mike knew he had a great mind and was always creatively coming up with great ideas. He had a passion for music (especially the capital area underground and his favorite band Acid Bath), writing poetry and music lyrics, he loved to talk to anyone that would listen, and had a twisted sense of humor. 

He enjoyed watching sports with his favorite teams being Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Vikings. 

He had a way of making everyone feel special and was always sure they knew that they mattered.

He was a proud father of 2 children that he adored and loved. Gideon Macdonald, 21, who shares his passion for writing, music and all things supernatural and his daughter Eris Macdonald, 12, who shares his love of music and Edgar Allen Poe. 

He is also survived by his childrens mothers Nicole Tanner and Nicole January, his cousins Donna Macdonald Passino, Daniel (Lynda) Macdonald, Rebecca (David) Ross, Scott (Angela) Macdonald, and William Macdonald. He was an only child but had many he considered his Troycore family including the Willsey family, the Lee family, Jeremy Ray, Dave Hull, Meghan VanEpps, and many more. 

He was loved by many and his kind heart, words, and wisdom will be greatly missed. 

 

Calling hours will be held at McLoughlin and Mason Funeral Home.
