Obituary for Michael William "Mike" Babasick Sr.

Michael W. Babasick Sr. “Beloved husband, father, and brother”
Mr. Michael W. Babasick Sr, 61, of Arrington, TN, formerly Newtown, passed away on Saturday, August 1st, 2020 in Franklin, TN. Michael was born in Bridgeport, CT on January 31, 1959 to the late Andrew and Rosanna (Rizzo) Babasick. He attended Newtown High School where he was known for all his crazy antics. After graduation, he went on to work at Dual Lite for many years where he met the love of his life Jane, in 1980. He spent many years volunteering at Botsford Fire and Rescue and Newtown Ambulance Corps. where he met many lifelong friends. He went on to work for Sentinel Lighting in 1995 until 2003. He always did what was best for his family and this took them to many places around the country, including Idaho, California, and finally Tennessee where he and his friend and business partner Louie Salamone started Power and Communication Systems.
Michael’s family was the light of his life. You could find Dad watching hours of Law and Order (which he passed on to his daughter), mowing the lawn in his “holey” Sunday shirt, yelling at everyone to “Get in the pool!”, watching countless Nascar races with his son, and sending thousands of snaps and pokes to his daughter. His sense of humor cannot be matched. With his numerous snap chat’s, puns, and dad jokes, he always had a quick come back and a smile on his face that will be missed by many.
Michael leaves behind his wife of 37 years Jane, daughter Meghan Pilloise (Babasick/Babapilloisick as he would say) and her husband Shayne of Naugatuck, son Michael Babasick Jr. of Nashville, TN, brother Richard Babasick and wife Deb of Arizona, brother Kenneth Babasick and wife Teresa of Oakville, sister Elizabeth Caswell of Watertown, his best friend Ray Schettino of Newtown, and many nieces and nephews that he loved very much. Michael was predeceased by his brother Steven Babasick and sister Patricia Partington.
