Michael Thomas Remeck, 65, of North Chelmsford, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, September 29, 2019 at his home.

Born in Boston, on October 30, 1953 he was the son of the late Michael V. and Ines Maria (Amidei) Remeck. He was educated in the Boston school system prior to graduating from Don Bosco High School with the class of 1972. Later in life he pursued higher education, earning his undergraduate degree from Northern Arizona University in the late 1990s and his Masters in social work from Boston University in the early 2000s. He was a licensed independent social worker specializing in adult care at the time of his passing.

He was many things;  a train lover, a wandering spirit who went on many adventures, a comic, a musician, a social worker and Boston University graduate, an orphan, a music aficionado, a songwriter and poet, it’s impossible to sum him up in a few words. He lived on his terms and loved his family deeply.

In his free time, he enjoyed camping, keeping up to date with the most current technology as well as politics, above all else, he cherished the time spent with his three grandchildren.

Mr. Remeck was predeceased by his sisters, Elizabeth Pywell- Stone and Elaine Remeck.

He is survived by his daughter, Heidi McAvoy and her husband Patrick of Millis, MA, his former wife Meghan Maxfield who was his dear friend for 50 years and concert companion, a sister, Ann Marie Arnott and her husband Jack of Georgia, three grandchildren, Elizabeth, Samantha and Patrick, nephews, Jeff Pywell and his wife Julie and Chris Arnott and his wife Marica, a niece, Meredyth Arnott, he also left behind many colleagues, friends, and patients whom he deeply cared about.

“How many roads must a man walk down before you can call him a man? . . . The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind, The answer is blowin’ in the wind.” ~ Bob Dylan

    The most compassionate,caring, giving, genuine person I’ve had the pleasure of calling a colleague/co-worker and friend. God Bless him and his family and may he rest easy, fly high with the eagles and enjoy the ride. I will miss his talks, his jokes, and his overall presence.

    I am Elaine Remeck’s life partner.
    Your father visited us a couple of times.
    He was always welcome here.
    I am sure they are now together in heaven.
    Your aunt was very close to her brother.
    I thought him as family.
    He was always welcome to visit us.
