Michael E. Condron, 60, of Westfield passed away on Tuesday, May 21, 2019, in the loving presence of his family.
Mike was born January 7, 1959, to the late James and Mary (Quinn) Condron of Westfield. Growing up on Fairview Street, he graduated from Westfield High School in 1978.Mike loved the open road, and after graduation he logged countless miles behind the wheel for Big Y and Westwood Cartage Inc., always learning of and sharing the best local restaurants on and off the beaten path regionally in the northeast.
As much as solitude graced him professionally, he was equally social and networked through the community back home. Mike was a devoted member of Slovaks Citizens Club, Sons of the American Legion Post 124, Elks Lodge 1481, St. Rocco’s Men’s Club, and the Westfield Moose Lodge 1255. Never a stranger, one of his greatest passions was raising money for his social clubs by organizing local dinners and participating in golf tournaments.It was also through this network that he was able to enjoy his lifelong passion for New England sports. Through thick and thin, Mike was an avid fan of the Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics and Patriots, and proudly supported Westfield athletics on the local front.
