Mike, 61, passed away peacefully on November 18, 2021. He bravely persevered through a number of illnesses over the past few years, while remaining as positive as possible, and rarely, if ever, complaining. Born in New Britain on February 13, 1960 to Carol and John Mogielnicki. Mike was a 1978 graduate of New Britain High School and also graduated from Central Connecticut State University. He completed his master’s degree at Hartford State College and went on to work at Bianca Signs as a manager for 36 years.
He played on many softball teams including Teresas, Farmington clubs, Meadowlands, and Sports Graphics just to name a few. He set many records and often led his teams in a variety of categories, while always wearing #44. He also was a lifetime member of the YMCA and became an avid racquetball player. Mike also enjoyed traveling to Atlantic City and attending many National Softball World Series events in Florida. He cherished the time and friendships that he made through these activities.
He was a beloved brother to Mark and uncle to Sarah and Kyle. He always enjoyed supporting them and loved attending their numerous shows, performances, sporting events, and milestones. More than anything, he loved the holidays and simply spending time with his family. Mike, we will miss you so much and thank you for sharing your life with us. Rest in Peace.
He will be honored with a mass at 10:00am at the Holy Apostles Parish (St. John the Evangelist Church) at 655 East Street, New Britain. He will be laid to rest in the family plot in Fairview Cemetery.
