Michael K. Sheehan, devoted husband of Genevieve Smith Sheehan and loving father of Jack Robert Sheehan, passed away on Saturday, October 6, 2018. Michael, born in Albany, NY, on November 17, 1963, is the son of Anne Sheehan and the late J. Robert Sheehan. In addition to his wife, son, and mother, he is also survived by his sisters and brothers, Maura (John) Barrett, Sean (Tina) Sheehan, Teige (Rebecca) Sheehan, and Siobhan (Travis) Rosencranse. He is also survived by Genevieve's parents Kathy and Don Smith, and her sisters, Megan (Thomas) McGuane and Elizabeth (Brendan) McTear, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Michael was a graduate of The College of Saint Rose, Albany, NY, and received his Master of Fine Arts from the American Film Institute in Los Angeles, California. He was a faculty member at AFI at the time of his passing, an avocation that befitted his boundless enthusiasm for all aspects of film, and the enjoyment of movies as art and entertainment. Everyone who knew Mike attests that he was one of the most kind-hearted, jovial, and passionate people they would ever encounter, and his exceptionally quick and clever wit made the world a happier place.

"I've never been certain whether the moral of the Icarus story should only be, as is generally accepted, 'Don't try to fly too high,' or whether it might also be thought of as, 'Forget the wax and feathers and do a better job on the wings.'" - Stanley Kubrick

"Fare you well, fare you well, I love you more than words can tell, Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul." - Jerry Garcia & Robert Hunter

In lieu of flowers, those who wish may make contributions in Michael's memory to the National MS Society.
