Obituary for Michael Eugene Sholly

Michael Eugene Sholly, 70, passed away peacefully on May 22, 2018 following a long illness. Michael was born on August 23, 1947 in Pittsburgh, PA and was a son of the late Alice and Andrew Sholly. Michael is survived by his wife of 46 years, Patti, and daughters Maris Sholly Mullen (Jon Mullen) of Charlotte, NC, Meredith Sholly Torrisi (Paul Torrisi) of Skaneateles, NY, Katie Sholly Gardner (Sean Gardner) of Larchmont, NY, and grandchildren Jack, Ellie, Michael, Cailin, Kevin, Peter, Tess, Mac and Ryan. He is also survived by two sisters, Anne Gitzen and Lennie Shannon and two brothers, Drew Sholly and Tony Sholly.
For 35 years, Mike and Patti lived in Guilford, CT and Mike loved every minute of it. Summers were spent clamming at Shell Beach, barbecuing with friends at the Surf Club, taking long walks around the Guilford Green or down Middle Beach Road, and bringing snacks to his girls while they
lifeguarded on Jacobs Beach. To know him even casually was to know his incredible sense of humor. He had a million one-liners, and made everything fun. No one laughed harder at Mike’s jokes than himself, tears streaming down his cheeks. You couldn’t help but laugh with him, even before you heard the punch line. Not lost in the humor, however, was his unrelenting faith and compassion, and above all, Mike’s friends and families were paramount to him.
Friends are invited to calling hours on Tues, May 29 from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Guilford Funeral Home, 115 Church St, Guilford. Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at St. George Church, 33 Whitfield St, Guilford on Wed, May 30 at 11 a.m. Burial will be held privately. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Middlesex Hospice, 28 Crescent St, Middletown, CT 06457;
