ROCKLAND – Michael L. Leon, 49, died unexpectedly, Thursday, February 6, 2020 at his home.

Born April 27, 1970 in Hollywood, Florida, he was the son of Jorge and Linda Baudanza Leon. Educated in Rockland, Mike was a 1988 graduate of Rockland District High School. While in high school, Mike was an exceptional athlete, excelling in both basketball and baseball. With more than one article written about his ‘rifle arm’ in the local paper, Michael once struck out 17 batters in one game.

A hard worker all his life, he spent most of his career as a commercial fisherman. When he wasn’t fishing off shore, he spent time lobstering and also worked with his father and brother in the family boat refinishing business. His family remembered there wasn’t much he couldn’t do or fix, and he had an incredible work ethic.

Always busy, Michael loved spending time outdoors, fishing, being on the lake and spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. They were his pride and joy. He was also known to ‘dabble’ in cars, motorcycles, boats, and anything else he could buy, sell, trade or fix up.

He was a lovable big hearted guy who would do anything for anyone in need. He will be sadly missed by all who loved him.

Mike will be loved and remembered by his parents, Jorge and Linda Leon of Rockland; his daughter Amanda Catalano and her husband Michael of South Thomaston; his brother Cris Leon and his wife Magdalene of Warren; his grandchildren, Lucas, Mason, Levi; his niece Alexis Leon of Warren; his companion Julie Soucy and her daughter Brittney; his former wife Rosie Rivera of Rockland; his four legged companion, his dog ‘Mookie’; and a very large, loving extended family as well as too many friends to count.

A celebration of his life will be held at 2:00 p.m., Friday, February 28, 2020 at Harbor Light Church, 78 Main Street, Rockland.

Arrangements are in the care of Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock Street, Rockland

Sincere condolences sent. I'll remember Michael back to our younger years playing together while our parents played cards. Later in our years, I was lucky enough to have gone swimming, fishing and rides with him. Always a Fun time ! Must be our Puerto Rican heritage that always seemed us laughing, joking and a valuable friend to me. Rest Easy Mike

Time goes by and we all take our own path. We take for granted the ones we love. I guess in my head I just kept thinking there would be another trip to sandy shores. Another childhood overnight. Another trip to the store next door for some squirrel nut zippers and Rc cola. I always looked up to you. You were handsome, charismatic, talented ,funny, the list goes on. We were friends as long as I can remember. Even though our paths were different, I never prepared for a day you would not be there. We all have our struggles. I am proud to have had you as a friend, as well as a life long brother. I will miss our trips to the rockland arcade, the mini bikes rides, watching you play basketball at the rec. You were a good person and your laugh will echo in my mind as long as I'm on this earth. Goodbye my friend. Fair winds and following seas.
