Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Michael Heffron, age 57 of Olyphant, passed away at home Tuesday afternoon after a courageous battle with cancer.
Born on October 28, 1959 and raised in Olyphant, he was the son of Betty Griffith Heffron of Olyphant and the late Robert Heffron. Michael was a graduate of Mid Valley High School, Class of 1977. Prior to illness, he worked as a millwright, last employed by RCA / Thompson Consumer Electronics, before its closure.
Michael was a passionate sports fan, especially for college football (Roll Tide!). A fixture on the local pool scene, he played in both the Scranton and Mid Valley pool leagues. His best times came while playing pool and having a beer with his buddies. He will always be missed by his countless family and friends.
He is also survived by his children, Michael Heffron, Jr. and wife Megan of Scranton and Nicole Wilson and husband Joshua of Huntsville, Alabama; siblings, Robert Heffron and wife Diane of Scranton; Jeffrey Heffron and wife Cherrie of Olyphant; and Joann Hannah and husband Joseph of Pittsburgh; two grandchildren, Julian and Giovanni Herrera; and many nieces and nephews.
A beloved daughter, Kellie Heffron, also preceded him in death.
His family wishes to thank the entire staff of Home Health Care Professionals, especially nurse Joanie, for the tremendous care given to Michael.
In a selfless act which will continue his legacy through the lives of others, Michael chose to donate his body to the sciences. A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
