Michael W. Hannigan

Date of Death: December 23, 2022

Date of Birth: July 11, 1955


Greene – It is with great sadness that the family of Michael W Hannigan announces his passing, at home, on December 23, 2022. Mike was born in Pleasanton, California the oldest child of Wayne A. and Marilyn (Warman) Hannigan. He grew up in Ludlow, Maine, graduating from Houlton High School in 1973.  In 1975, he married the love of his life, Debbie Sewall, and they eventually settled in Greene.

At a young age, Mike had a very inquisitive nature and enjoyed taking things apart just to see what made them tick.  This curiosity served him well as he went on to build his heavy equipment mechanic's shop, JDM, alongside his wife and son, Jason. For approximately 30 years, Mike was a school bus mechanic for several of the local communities as well as the 'go-to' guy for construction companies, independent wood cutters and truck drivers.

Mike's diverse interests lead him down many paths which he always embraced wholeheartedly. He enjoyed time as a volunteer fireman, a trail groomer for a local snowmobile club, an antique tractor club member, a gardener, an antique truck club memeber and the owner/operator of a sawmill. Mike's love of learning never waned, and his latest endeavors had him canning his own relish and building a woodworking shop - with the groundwork being completed less than a month ago. By far, one of his proudest accomplishments was the restoration of his 1955 Mack truck which he happily displayed in local parades and celebrations with Linda.

Mike's generous and kind spirit will be missed by many.

He is survived by son, Jason and his wife, Monique of Monmouth; his life's companion for the past 11 years, Linda Hooker of Oxford; his siblings, Colleen (Doug) London of Houlton; Gary Hannigan of Ludlow; Lori Smith of Bradley; and Brian (Nicole) Hannigan of Houlton; and a very special friend, Kevin Woodbury. Mike also leaves behind several nieces and nephews.

While Mike was passionate about many things, he felt very strongly about young people learning a trade. In lieu of flowers, donations in Mike's memory can be sent to {Sabattus Regional Credit Union} which will provide scholarships to Oak Hill High School seniors who plan on entering a vocational or trade school.  A celebration of life will be held at a later date with a spring interment in the Ludlow Cemetery.
