Thomaston — Michael Allen Estes, 28, passed away unexpectedly Sunday, March 1, 2020, at his home.

Born Sept. 20, 1991, in Redondo Beach, Calif., to Robert Paul and Luz Nohora (Cufino) Estes.

When Michael was 8 months old, his family moved to Maine.

Baptized at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Rockland, he was a regular attendee with his mother and brother during his early years.

He attended St. George Elementary School and the former George’s Valley High School in Thomaston.

While in school Mike loved to play baseball, soccer and basketball. He also studied karate and played golf.

Michael also loved music and fell in love with playing the saxophone.

He worked as a lobsterman and a builder and sold life insurance for some time.

His mother and brother remember him as having a smile that would light up a room and someone who laughed a lot and made others laugh at his jokes.

He wasn’t afraid of singing along to a Britney Spears song if it meant bringing laughter to those around him.

Michael was a truly caring person and many people were blessed to call him a friend. He was someone you knew you could count on and would be there for you when needed.

Michael was special in that he naturally drew others towards him with his infectious personality.

His kind soul and beautiful spirit had an immeasurable impact on the people in his life.

There was nothing he wouldn’t try to build, fix, or repair; his hands were full of magic!

Though he is no longer with us physically, his spirit lives on in those who were blessed to know him and loved him.

Predeceased by his father, Robert, in 1999, he is survived by his mother, Luz Nohora Estes, of Rockland; his brothers, Paul Estes of Tenants Harbor and Jason Estes of Fullerton Calif.; his sisters, Angel Pia Estes of North Carolina and Dawn Pote Lynch of Connecticut; his grandmother, Maria Olivia Trianna, of Thomaston; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

In lieu of flowers donations in Michael’s memory may be made to Trekkers Inc. 58 Park St., Suite 202, Rockland, ME 04841 Trekkers had a positive impact in Michael’s life.

A celebration of Michael’s life will be held at a later date and will be announced.
