Michael (Mike) Jacques Gagné, 71 of Venice, FL, formerly Highgate Center, Vermont went to be with his Lord and Savior on July 30, 2021 after a courageous battle with a long term illness. There is a joyful reunion taking place in heaven.

Mike graduated from Vermont Technical College, and was employed by Howe Richardson Scale Company, Simmonds Precision, Eastman Kodak and IBM where he retired in February, 2012.


Mike enjoyed singing, hunting, classic cars, being in nature, collecting antiques and restoring/caring for his home of 41 years on Carter HIll Rd in Highgate Center, Vermont. He was a proud Husband, Father, Pepe´, Uncle and above all a follower of Jesus Christ, his Lord and Savior. His sincere and beautiful smile remained with him to the end.


Mike was an active member of Church of the Rock in St Albans, Vermont for many years. After moving to Florida, he and Liz found a church family that he loved to worship with at Harvest Chapel of Venice, FL. They have been a blessing to him and Liz.
