Michael Thomas Sheehey, 59, passed away suddenly at his home Tuesday, November 5, 2019. The family will receive friends from 5 - 7 pm Friday, November 8, 2019, at Dunn's Funeral Home in Des Moines. A private burial will take place in the future.

Michael was born March 3, 1960, in Des Moines, IA, to Richard and Donna (Peddicord) Sheehey.

Mike worked as an Instrument Technician for Methodist for many years.

He truly loved animals, especially his cat Sassy. He had a great sense of humor; he was an expert at sarcasm. Mike enjoyed decorating his home and his family’s homes, he was a true visual artist. His family was very important to him, even if he did tell them when it was time to go home. They enjoyed many dinners and get togethers as a family.

Michael is survived by his father, Richard Sheehey; sisters, Terri (Dennis) Richardson, Debbie Johnson, Kathy (Johny) Rickert; nieces, Lisa (Chris) Pruitt, Jessica (Brandon) Jones; nephews, Jason (Deb) Umphress, Todd (Vanessa) Benson, Jack (Nikki) Miller; his beloved feline, Sassy; as well as all those who loved him. He was preceded in death by his mother, Donna Sheehey; infant brother, Richard.

We will all miss Mike’s crazy, sarcastic sense of humor and all the laughs and fun we had with him. He was the best son, brother, uncle, and friend ever.

Contributions may be made to the ARL.
