Michael Patrick CounihanJanuary 4, 2018
Michael Patrick Counihan passed away Thursday, January 4, 2018 with family by his side. Mike was a loving son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend. Mike was taken far too early from us, but leaves incredible memories behind for all who knew him.
Mike was born in Illinois in December 1952. He moved west in the 80’s and spent over 30 years as a resident of the East Bay in the food broker/merchandising business. An avid music lover and sports fan, Mike loved discussing sports, politics and music with others. Considered by many to be “the nicest man you’ll ever meet,” Mike was generous, kind-hearted, genuine, loved by all, and never required much for himself, but gave a lot to others. He was a DJ for the past 20 years and he loved playing music to a crowded dance floor. Everyone who knew him felt that they had a close relationship with him as he made everyone feel special and appreciated. The world truly lost one of its best with his passing.
Mike is preceded in death by his parents, Timothy Francis Counihan Jr and Audrey Counihan. He is survived by his younger sisters, Susan (John) Louko, Lori (John) Morabito and his nieces and nephews, Sarah (Brian) Jones, Claire (Jason) Cundiff, Joey, Justin and Jenna Morabito.
Friends and Family are invited to a Memorial Service on Friday, January 26 at 11am at Wilson & Kratzer Chapel of San Ramon Valley.
