In Memory of Michael Sidney Voutour

CHANTILLY, VA – Michael Sidney Voutour, 67, of Chantilly, passed from this life Wednesday, February 6, 2019 in the Virginia Hospital Center, Arlington.

Born in Jacksonville Beach, FL on October 31, 1951 and raised in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, he was one of nine siblings. Mike graduated from Duncan U. Fletcher High School, Neptune Beach, FL in 1970 and served on the St. Johns County police force before moving to Chevy Chase, MD, and later to Northern Virginia where he remained until his death.

Starting out as an automotive mechanic, Mike first became a service adviser with Goodyear in Springfield (later in Manassas) and subsequently with a number of leading Washington area automobile dealerships that included the Rosenthal, Browns, and Ourisman organizations. With the Pohanka automotive group, Mike was a service manager at their Acura and Chevrolet dealerships in Chantilly. He also worked with Hertz Car Rental’s service department, and was a regional fleet manager for Budget car rentals. For a time Mike was President and co-owner of “Tool Guys,” a retail sales tool company, before returning to the automotive service industry.

Mike enjoyed hunting and fishing, bowling and golf. He loved collecting baseball caps and unique T-shirts, as well as working with his hands. He loved NASCAR, all things Earnhardt and more recently Martin Truex, and watching Live PD, Cops and survival reality TV. Mike liked C&W music, George Thorogood and Santana. But his enduring love was of all things automotive and motorcycles. Mike rode regularly every Memorial Day with a veterans group in Rolling Thunder.

But mostly, Mike really liked people and was universally well liked in return. He had an outgoing personality and a great sense of humor. He was always ready to step up and help someone in need, even perfect strangers — many of whom became lifelong friends. Mike will be greatly missed and his legacy will be the many people whose lives he touched.

Sadly, while his spirit prevailed until the very end, his body did not, and after a brief stay at Virginia Hospital Center, Mike passed peacefully on the night of February 6, 2019.

Mike was preceded by his mother Mary and father Frank. In addition to his wife Mary of 39 years, he is survived by his siblings Frank (Carol) and Tom (Dina) of Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, Mary (Harold) Donaghee of Live Oak, FL, Ann (Paul) Scroggins and Raymond (Cindy) of Jacksonville, FL, David of Madison, FL, Edward (Cindy) of St. Augustine, FL, and Paul (Cindy) of Jacksonville, FL, and numerous nieces and nephews.

On Friday, March 8, 2019, a Memorial Service will be held at Demaine Funeral Home – Fairfax, 10565 Main Street, Fairfax, VA 22030, commencing at 5:30 p.m. In celebration of his life, visitors will be invited to share their experiences and memories of Mike. Family will begin to receive guests at 4:30 p.m. His cremains will be interred in the family plot in Sampson Cemetery, St. Augustine, FL at a date to be determined.

Mary, we're so sorry for your loss. We will always remember your visit to Oregon with Mike enjoying all the laughter and fun at our family dinner in the Haines Steakhouse where we all got acquainted for the first time. A few years later you and Mike welcomed us to DC where you both acted as our tour guides and shared your hospitality as only Mary and Mike could do it. Lots of fun and laughter with our family never to be forgotten. All of our love and prayers to you Mary and your family.

So sorry for your loss. Both Mary and Mike were wonderful neighbors to the Melella family. We always had great fun with Mary and Mike on our Easter visits. He was a great guy and will be missed❤️

Mary,

We loved our annual trips to Virginia over Easter weekend to visit our family and extended family....you and Mike! I will always remember my first dirt bike ride, blackberry brandy and my Top Gun like rendition of “you’ve lost that loving feeling”.....poor Chantilly! Mike was a wonderful man and so genuine, I will remember his love and support of my family through everything and his big heart.

With Sympathy and Love,
Dave and the Imbrogno Family

Oh Mary , we are so very sorry for your loss! Mike (and you) were such a dedicated, loyal, and loving friend to aunt Barbara and Uncle Tom.....and to my dad Willy! .and to all of us whenever we came down to visit....my favorite memory would have to be a song sang to a pup at your house “you’ve lost that living feeling!”
Wishing you love and strength to get through this the best you can
