Michael Walter Rezendes, 66 passed away unexpectedly on Friday, January 5, 2018. Michael’s health was not perfect, but he was diligent about making changes to follow a healthy lifestyle, which he accomplished.
Michael was born on November 22, 1951, in Acushnet, MA. Michael graduated from New Bedford High School and the University of Massachusetts, North Dartmouth with a degree in Accounting.
Michael was enjoying his retirement and filled his time with taking care of his apartment buildings, watching sports, and spending time with his wife of over 32 years, Michele LaCasse Rezendes. He recently purchased the car of his dreams, a Corvette. He enjoyed traveling to Miami, watching old time westerns, finding hidden treasures at the dump with his father in-law Maurice LaCasse and spending time with his son, Christopher Rezendes and his wife, Sara Frances Rezendes, along with his two grandchildren, Carter and Annie. He was excited about his third grandchild being born in March. He also had much to look forward to in the coming year with his son Jonathan Rezendes’ marriage to Lauren Michelle Scogin in June and his daughter, Alexandra Rezendes’ graduation from Laboure College in May. He enjoyed spending time with Alexandra’s boyfriend, Craig Rode, when he was in town. He was a firm believer in a college education and worked hard to make sure his children were given every opportunity possible to attend the college of their choice. He was so very proud of all they have accomplished.
Services and burial will be private.
Thank you all who reached out to our family during this very difficult time.
