Michael L. Linkiewicz, 75, of Phoenix, AZ and formerly of New Harford, NY passed away on Monday, September 24, 2018, at his home.

He was born on February 4, 1943, in Utica, son of the late Stephen and Celia (Majka) Linkiewicz. He graduated from Proctor High School and Canton College. On April 8, 1967, Mike married Antoinette (Toni) Jecen in Utica, NY. She predeceased him on September 25, 1990. He worked in sales and marketing for Fredericks Air Conditioning which took him to various places throughout the country and eventually brought him and his family back to Utica for several years before he relocated to Phoenix, AZ in 1993.

Mike was a devote Catholic and was a member of St. Gabriel the Archangel Catholic Community Church in Cave Creek, AZ.

He enjoyed his free time and looked forward to golfing and going to the race track (or OTB) with friends or attending various sporting events his grandchildren participated in.

He is survived by his loving children, Michael Linkiewicz II and his wife, Jean, of Jamesville, NY; Andrea Quosig and her husband, Richard, of Half Moon Bay, CA; and Mark Linkiewicz and his wife, Christy, of Quincy, MA; grandchildren, Sydney and Celia (CJ) Linkiewicz, Jake, Connor and Sarah Quosig and Gabrielle, Maxwell and Colton Linkiewicz; Stephen Linkiewicz (brother) and his wife, Eileen, of New Hartford, NY; Andrew & Geraldine Jecen (brother-in law & and sister-in-law) and nieces/nephews Rebecca & Erin Linkiewicz, Stephen Jecen (wife Colleen), Jacqueline Lohin (Husband Emil) and Vanessa Ahrens (husband Tim).

Calling hours will be on Thursday from 5:00 to 7:00pm at the Friedel, Williams & Edmunds Funeral and Cremation Services, 13 Oxford Rd., New Hartford. The funeral will be on Friday at 10:30am at St. John the Evangelist Church in New Hartford, NY. Interment will be in St. Stanislaus Cemetery.

Friends may consider in lieu of flowers, a donation to Maureen Andrews Barker’s Memorial Fundraising page to support cancer research in his memory. Maureen (Mo) was a dear friend and the wife of a life-long friend, Mitch Barker. She recently passed and Mike was looking forward to attending her Celebration of Life Ceremony later this month.
