January 24, 1960 – June 5, 2019
Sobchuk, Michael Anthony, of Norwood, formerly of South Boston, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family on June 5, 2019.
Beloved husband of Amy (Cantalupa) Sobchuk of Norwood. Loving father of Catherine, Jacqueline, and Michael. Son of the late Gregory and Joann (Goralski) Sobchuk. Dear Brother of Karen and Stuart Pierce of Hanover, Gregory of Orleans, Joann and Richard Yates of Beaverton, OR, Paul of South Boston, and Joseph and Marie of Saugus. Dear Son-In-Law of Anthony and Kathleen Cantalupa of Somerville, and Brother-In-Law of John and Jenny Cantalupa of Somerville, and Patrick and Jeaune Borden of Norton. Michael is also survived by a loving niece, and many nephews, cousins, and friends. Michael was the rock of our family, always ready to help out on any home project, car repair, or purchase. He was a 40+ year employee of the Clark & White/Bay State/McGovern dealership in Newton. A master craftsman, his vast knowledge and sharp wit was only exceeded by his ability to fix anything. He lived to make you laugh and was extremely loyal to all he knew and loved.

Dear Amy & Family,
I want to express my most sincere sympathy for the passing of Mike.
Mike was a great guy. He had a personality in a league all of his own. Working with Mike was a treat. He could certainly be business-like and at the same time be a joker and ball buster. I’m grateful you guys met all of us last year for drinks. You are all in prayers. Again, I’m shocked and very sorry.
