ST. GEORGE – Michael A. Batty, 44, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Saturday, December 28, 2019.
Born in Rockland, September 8, 1975, he was the son of William and Marylou (Yattaw) Batty Sr. and husband to Jessica Olsen-Batty.
Educated in local schools, Mike was a graduate of Rockland District High School and attended the University of Southern Maine for some time to study firefighting.
A hard worker all his life, Mike was working as a Sternman for a local Lobster Fisherman when he passed.
Mike was known to have a very kind, gentle spirit and was friendly and loving to everyone he met. He would have given his last dime or the shirt off his back to anyone in need.
It was these qualities, along with a strong, loving bond with his mother, that would prompt him to check on her every single day without fail.
He enjoyed working in his vegetable garden and was an amazing cook. His mashed potatoes were in a class by themselves and his homemade cream horns and chocolate covered caramel apples were very popular with family members as they would look forward to receiving them as Christmas gifts every year.
Because of his love of cooking, Mike enjoyed being a moderator for several YouTube channels that showcased cooking and competitive eating programs.
Besides his family, and his wife Jessica, another of Mike’s loves was his beloved dog, Maximus, who predeceased him by one day.
His love for the Lord began at an early age and he made it no secret that his favorite verse in the Bible was Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth. To the Jew first, and also to the Greek”.
Predeceased by his father William Sr., his granddaughter, Aileana Roselyn Harvey, and his father in-law Frank “Papa” Olsen, he is survived by his wife Jessica, and his mother Marylou, both of St. George; his step-daughter Olivia Orff and her boyfriend Nicki A. Harvey of Waldoboro; his brother William R. Batty Jr, his wife Susan and their children Julia, Nathaniel, and Matthew of Spruce Head; his sister, Lisa Batty Wight, her husband Dwane and their children Eben & Caleb of St. George; a grandson, Jackson Michael Wayne Harvey of Waldoboro, and several cousins, aunts, and uncles.
A celebration of Michael’s life will be held at 2:00 pm on Sunday, January 26, 2020 at the Thomaston Baptist Church with the Rev. Wayne Sawyer officiating.
In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations in Mike’s memory be made to the Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County, PO Box 1294, Rockland ME 04841 or to the American Cancer Society, 1 Main St. Suite 300, Topsham ME 04086.

Private Condolence

I want to express my sincere condolences to Jess and Mary Lou. I first met Mike when he was watching over the Co-Op when I was diving out of there for urchins and scallops. Then 4-5 years ago I was reacquainted with Mike when he started lobstering with my friend, Robert Hodgkins. I used to go and help them some and became very close friends with Mike. I loved him very much. He was a wonderful friend, I miss him very much, and I am looking forward to seeing Him again someday with our Savior, Jesus Christ. - Mert Sawyer
