THOMASTON - Michael F. “Mike” Blais, 67, passed away unexpectedly on August 31, 2020 at Maine Medical Center in Portland. He was born on December 9, 1952 in Lewiston to F. Vincent and Claire (Mercier) Blais.

During his service in the United States Marine Corps, Mike met Kathleen Scrivani, and the two were married on February 15, 1975 in Baltimore. In 1984 they relocated to Thomaston where they built their home and raised their family.

Mike will always be remembered and appreciated for his strong work ethic and his lifetime of hard work to do whatever needed to be done to support and take care of his family. Without hesitation, he was always there to lend a helping hand and give advice. Mike’s vast knowledge on all subjects never ceased to amaze his loved ones.

Mike’s life was centered around his home and his family. He loved to garden and kept a meticulous yard. There was no home improvement project he wasn’t willing to tackle. Mike found so much joy in preparing meals for family gatherings. At his family’s request, he would always prepare the dishes he was known for and had perfected over the years, yet there was always a new recipe or marinade he was excited to try. He loved Christmas, and year after year he outdid himself with lights and decorations, always striving to make the holidays magical and memorable.

In addition to his loving wife of 45 years Kathleen, Mike is survived by his mother Claire of Georgia; two adoring children, Nicole Greenlee and her husband Jimmy of Texas, Christopher Blais of Warren; and his beloved grandson Tristan, who lovingly called him “Bumpa”. He was preceded in death by his father Vince.
Mike’s legacy as a devoted family man and a true patriot will live on in the wonderful memories he leaves behind with his family and friends. He loved his country, flew its flag, and was so proud of his service in the Marine Corps. A kid at heart with an adventurous spirit, he loved to travel and experience new things. Mike’s love of life, his laughter, and his presence will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Services, which will be private for immediate family members are in the care of Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock Street, Rockland. His final resting place will be at Village Cemetery in Thomaston.

Flowers are gratefully accepted and may be sent to the funeral home on Thursday, September 10. To share a memory or condolence with the family, please leave a message of love here on Mike's Book of Memories.

I was Mike’s supervisor in the Pro Department at the Thomaston’s Lowes for about 18 months. A few things I will always remember about Mike – 1) He was always willing to help out when things needed to get done, whether it was moving lumber or helping put together a quote for a customer. 2) He spoke his mind and would share observations about the job so you always knew where he stood. 3) He had a great sense of humor. Our departmental staff huddles usually involved a fair amount of complaining about one thing or another, but more often than not, we ended up laughing at some story or observation or snide remark from Mike. 4) . He loved “Donut Day”! He’d stop by Walmart or Dunkin Donuts and would pick up 1-2 dozen doughnuts every Thursday for the staff to share. Mike was a proud Veteran and it was an honor to work with him. My condolences to his family.

Kathy, Claire and family,
I am sorry that you have lost Mike I will keep you all in my prayers. I only met Mike when I visited Claire at Bartlett Woods on Sundays but he seemed like a very caring thoughtful son and husband.

I started at the jail with Mike over twenty years ago. We went full time, he became my corporal, then a Sergeant joining me in sharing the work load. We replaced each other almost daily while he was days and I was nights. In 2000, my husband had very distressing medical symptoms and Mike said he had the same symptoms and get to the Dr. as it required surgery. He was right. My husband I considered that he saved my husband life by sharing. He even came to the hospital to see him, just before my husband's surgery. Mike was funny, smart, brave and caring. We are so sorry to learn of his passing. A good man, we will always remember fondly. (Sgt. retired this year) Marcia Clark

Mike was an extremely caring and kind man and you could always count on him to lighten the mood with a good joke. We feel extremely privileged to have known him, and have no words that express how truly sorry we are to hear of the loss of such a wonderful soul. Our thoughts and prayers are with all his wonderful family. - Love Tim and Jen Williams

Dear Kathy and Family:
I am so sorry to hear of Mike's passing. From many years working with Mike at both at the Town and later at Lowes I know his great sense of humor and big smile will surely be missed. Being a good sport when ever Mike would come into the Town Office all of us girls would say Mike, Mike, Mike what day is it and he would always respond with hump day then jokingly ask what was wrong with us not knowing what day it was. Kathy if there is anything I can do please do not hesitate to ask. I am sending you this picture of the Red Cardinal that I took in my backyard, When Wayne passed I was told that when you spot a cardinal know that a loved one was there checking on you.
