Michael “Mohawk Mike” Conlon
Michael “Mohawk Mike” Conlon of Hingham, formerly of Weymouth, passed away on May 5th, 2019.
Mike will be remembered as a kind, loving, compassionate, creative, selfless, thoughtful “gentle giant”. He loved wrestling, building custom model cars, karaoke, and urban exploring with friends. Mike was passionate about drag racing and spent many summers at New England Dragway serving on the crew of his family’s race car – The Boston Monkey.
It is hard to sum up Mohawk Mike’s life in a few sentences. Those who knew Mike know what a truly selfless person he was. Whether it was changing a flat tire in the rain for a friend, helping his sister move for the umpteenth time, or staying on the phone with a friend in distress through the night. The stories of his undying love and sacrifice for those he cared about are endless. Mike touched so many people’s lives and hearts during his life. His legacy and kindness will live on forever.
Michael is survived by his cherished parents, Donna and Francis Conlon of Braintree. His beloved sister and brother-in-law, Jennifer Conlon-Bates and Dennis Bates of Rockland. His adored Aunt / God-Mother Marcia Reddington of Weymouth. His dearest true love, Robyn Charam of Hingham. And countless loving family and friends across the world.
