Michael Allen Sloane, 52, of Bristol, much loved husband, father, brother, uncle and friend, passed away on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 at St. Francis Hospital, after beating the odds against cancer for two years with strength and determination.
Born in New Britain on June 9, 1967, he was the son of the late George and Cynthia (Whitman) Sloan and was a 1985 graduate of Plainville High School. Michael fulfilled his passion for painting and renovation as the owner and operator of Michael Sloane Remodeling, making his clients his friends for the past 30 years. Remembered for his larger than life personality, his kindness and charisma were infectious and commanded the attention of any room he entered. The self-proclaimed “corvette guy”, could be found many days cruising in his precious yellow treasure. Musically talented, Michael wrote, sang, and excelled at guitar, providing hours of entertainment for his family and friends. A sports enthusiast, he enjoyed NASCAR races, and was a diehard fan of the New England Patriots and New York Yankees, proudly representing his favorite player Graig Nettles by wearing the #9 often. He was a longtime member and volunteer for the Bristol Elks Lodge #1010, where he leaves a wide circle of friends who supported him greatly throughout his illness. He will be missed beyond words, leaving a legacy of love, laughter and many cherished memories.
He leaves the love of his life, Katherine (Kaleodis) Sloane and his pride and joy, their son, Austin, of Bristol; his brother, George Sloan, Jr and his wife, Bethany; his mother and father-in-law, Peter and Agnes Kaleodis; his sister-in-law, Lynn Diaz and her husband, John and his brothers-in-law, Michael Kaleodis and Jeff Eisenhauer. He was the cool, fun uncle to Tyler and his wife, Shannon, Peter, Niko, Maxwell, Jackson and Emily; and leaves many aunts, uncles and cousins, including Darrin, countless friends, especially his best buddy Danny Guglietta and his four-legged faithful companion, “Don Mattingly” who misses her master Mike immensely.
Mike’s family extends their heartfelt gratitude to the doctors, nurses and staff at the Smilow Cancer Center at St. Francis Hospital and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for their care and compassion.
