CANFIELD - Michael P.“Mike” Homsey, 70, passed away with family by his side Monday, May 22, 2023. As faith helps guide us through each day, fond memories and stories of those we have loved and lost sustain us.
Michael was born November 10, 1952, in Stamford, CT, a son of the late Michael P. Homsey Jr., and Julia Fetchet Homsey, and was a long-time resident of Youngstown.
For those that knew him, knew he was many things – a husband, father, grandfather, brother, coach, mentor, confidant, friend, storyteller, and so much more.
Mike grew up in Boardman with his parents and sister and was a 1970 graduate of Boardman High School, as well as a proud Boardman Band Alumnus. Following his time at Boardman, Mike continued his education at Youngstown State University, where he met many wonderful people, including his life-long brothers of Phi Kappa Tau.
He spent the majority of his career as a respiratory therapist, of which he saw as his true calling. He cared deeply for his patients and their families and had a passion for helping others. Outside of his career, Mike enjoyed Cleveland Sports, golfing, playing bocce and was an avid reader.
Mr. Homsey was a member of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Basilica in Youngstown.
He was deeply rooted in his faith, family, and friends, and enjoyed spending time with those he loved. Above all else, Mike was a beloved husband, father, and Pop. To say family brought him the most joy is an understatement. He brought that same joy to those nearest and dearest to his heart.
