Obituary of Michael Violette
Hamlin--Michael “Mike” Violette, 65, passed away peacefully Saturday evening October 14, 2023, surrounded by his family at the Aroostook House of Comfort in Presque Isle, ME. He was born on February 7, 1958, in Van Buren, ME. Mike was the son of the late Gabriel and Gerry (Corriveau) Violette. Mike leaves behind his children Jacob and his wife Lindsay Violette, and Lauren Violette of Winslow, ME. His sister Lea and husband Donald Ouellette of Hampden, ME. His fiancée Denise Parent Martin of Hamlin, ME. Amber Martin of Bradenton, FL, and Anthony and his wife Tosha Martin of Van Buren, ME, and 4 grandchildren Blake, Zachary, Isaac, and Alex.
One thing Mike was known for was his love of music. As a D.J. for several years, Mike was always ready to entertain and light up a room. Mike also enjoyed quality time with his dog Bailey and watching his favorite sports teams on television, especially with some good chicken wings! Mike spent his career serving people in Kennebec County. From working as a bench jeweler at Day’s Jewelers to helping young adults with developmental disabilities, Mike enjoyed creating personal connections. Although Mike lived in Winslow, ME for many years, he later accomplished his dream of moving back to “the County”. While working at the DMV in Caribou, Mike always looked forward to seeing people from Van Buren, as it made his day when they recognized him and had lots of stories and laughs to share.
Later in life, Mike met his fiancée, Denise, and her family. He enjoyed decorating cookies at Christmas, watching the grandkids play for the hometown, four-wheeling through the farmland, and playing nightly games of Skip-Bo with Denise.

Calling hours will be from 8:00 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. at the same location.
