Obituary for Michael Lewis Openshaw

Michael Lewis  Openshaw
Brewer – Michael Lewis Openshaw, 46, flew with his superman cape to heaven on August 16, 2016, surrounded by family and friends at home after a courageous and inspiring battle with a rare cancer. He was born October 8, 1969 in Fort Bragg, North Carolina and is the son of Edward and Ellen Openshaw of Bar Harbor.

Mike graduated from Bangor High School in 1987 and served with the U.S. Army in Fort Ord, California. After serving, Mike’s life was filled with numerous work and personal adventures too lengthy to mention them all. He most recently worked for 13 years for Lead Me Media, which allowed him to showcase his love for conversation and genuine interest in people. Mike’s passion for nature through hiking trails in Bar Harbor or Mount Katahdin, or years as a white water rafting guide with Professional River Runners of Maine allowed him to exercise his boundless energy. Mike’s other work adventures he had fond memories of include time as a service writer for Darlings, an EMT for Peninsula Ambulance, and even lobstering the cold Maine waters. Mike was an inspiration to all through his work to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for cancer through his family Penobscot Relay for Life team, The OTeam.

In addition to his parents, Mike is survived by his wife Lisa, and daughters Torrisa, Jessica and Abby, sister Tracey, brother Stephen, very special niece Jaclyn and nephews Devon and Dylan; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and other close family and friends.
Family and friends are welcome to join in a celebration of Mike’s life on Sunday August 21, 2016, at Spectacular Event Center, 395 Griffin Road, Bangor from 2-6 p.m. Those that wish to remember Mike in a special way may make a donation in his memory to EMMC Foundation, 1 Cumberland Place, Suite 300, Bangor, ME 04401 or American Cancer Society Penobscot Relay for Life, memo The OTeam, 1 Bowdoin Mill Island, Topsham, ME 04086.
