Michael J. Walsh

105 Cortright Road

Middletown, N.Y.

Michael J. Walsh, a longtime resident, Electrician by trade, and retired Corrections Officer, passed away

peacefully with his family by his side at Sapphire Nursing Facility. He was 80 years old.

The son of the late Gerald and Mary Walsh, and brother of Patrick, he was born in New York City on

December 1. 1941.  He married his first love, Linda Lee Zink on February 18, 1961, in the Bronx. They

raised three sons and celebrated 29-years of marriage until her untimely passing in 1990.

Years later he was lucky enough to find love again and married his second wife Tina Garrison spending

many years of happiness together.

Michael was a devoted family man, who with his family welcomed many foster children into their lives.

He was an avid Mets and Giants fan. He loved camping, golf, and family get togethers. He volunteered

for Little League and often was coaching or rooting at a game or some other sporting event. Michael had

a heart of gold and cherished every young person who came into their household. With his caring,

compassion, and concern for others, he made a difference in many many lives.

He is survived by his three loving sons and their families; Daniel and his wife Bari of Middletown, Craig

Walsh of Fallsburg, Mike, and his wife Jennifer of Fair Oaks and six cherished grandchildren; Cody, Bryan,

Michael, Sydney, Jacob, and Hannah. With his second marriage, he was blessed with even more children

and grandchildren, and the opportunity to enjoy all the activities, holidays and outings that meant so

much to him.  Our family was fortunate to have so many that thought so much of our dad. For all who

kept him close in their hands and hearts, we are eternally grateful. And while we mourn his loss, we are

indebted to everyone who cared and visited him during his illness.

Visitation will take place on Tuesday, October 25, 2022, from 4:00-8:00pm at the Applebee-McPhillips

Funeral Home with a funeral Service of Remembrance celebrated at 7:00pm with Pastor Josh from

Goodwill Church officiating. Burial will take place in the family plot in Bloomingburg Cemetery at the

convenience of the family.
