PROSPECT — Mr. Michael Stephen Harrington, 41, of Prospect, died unexpectedly on Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2016. He was the husband of Deirdre Sheridan.

Mike was born in Hartford on May 23, 1975, only son of Stephen and Judy Harrington of South Yarmouth, Mass. He formerly worked as a judicial marshal in New Haven.

Michael was a simple man. He loved spending time with his son Brian. They enjoyed the Giants and Yankees. They spent time gardening and working around the house.

Michael was a hard worker who instilled this work ethic on his son. Michael enjoyed the beaches at Cape Cod and fishing. Mike will be remembered by his family for always being there if you need him, cooking and enjoying family feasts.
