Michael Labbe, 57, of Plainville, formerly of Terryville, passed away at his home with his family by his side, on Wednesday, January 27, 2021. In sickness and in health, he shared five happy years with Patricia (Pagliaro) Labbe, who was by his side throughout his entire diagnosis and five year fight against cancer. Mike, along with the support of God and his family, faced his journey full of determination and faith.
Born in New Britain on April 28, 1963, he was the son of Adrian “Joseph” Labbe of Lincolnton, NC and the late Lillian (Boutot) Labbe. Raised and educated in Terryville, he was a graduate of Terryville High School. A talented carpenter, Mike worked for Modern Countertop in Bristol for more than fifteen years, where he met many dear friends. He proudly worked at Bristol Hospital for close to 20 years, retiring in 2020, and was beloved by so many in all departments. A selfless man who was always on the go, Mike was a devoted family man of strong faith, whose care and concern for others was ever-present. He was a “passionate” spectator of many sports, often sharing his opinions to the television, and, enjoyed sharing his “useless knowledge”, fun facts and recollections of events from the past. He will be missed beyond words, leaving a legacy of love, laughter and precious memories for his family and many friends. His family finds comfort in the assurance that he is at home with the Lord, having received Jesus Christ as his personal Savior.
In addition to his wife, Patty, and his father, Joseph, he leaves his daughters, Rachel (Labbe) Bergeron and her children, Riley Herold and Jace Bergeron of Terryville; Michelle (Labbe) Hussey, her husband Peter and their daughter, Lilliana Hussey of Terryville and Ashley Labbe of Plainville, to whom Mike was entirely devoted; his step-sons, Matthew and James Lapila; his brother, Donald Labbe and his wife, Barbara of Bristol, his sister, Lori Madigan and her husband, Daren of Barre, VT; and many nieces and nephews.
