Michael A. Fenton, 57, of Enfield, passed away Monday, July 16, 2018 of a sudden illness at home. He was born on July 20, 1960 a son of John F. and Maryanna Clapper Fenton.
He graduated from Zanesville High School, Class of 1978 and Muskingum College in 1982. Michael was a member of the Hazardville United Methodist Church in Enfield, CT. Michael’s career as a project manager in fossil fuels energy took him to Connecticut in 1992. He will be remembered as a loving father who enjoyed spending time with his family, and coaching his children, and many other children, in the many sports in which they participated throughout their childhood. He was a sports enthusiast and enjoyed watching his Ohio teams, especially the Buckeyes, the Browns, and the Indians. Mike never met a stranger and would always lend a helping hand to those in need. He instilled his love and the value of hard work and integrity into his children, who were his proudest accomplishments. His kind humorous spirit, bigheartedness, and selflessness will be truly missed.
