On April 11, 2019, Michael Power, 54 years young, passed away unexpectedly in a Florida hospital of complications resulting from an on-going illness.

In addition to family in Kings and Orange counties, Mike leaves behind 2 daughters, Hannah, 17, Cecelia, 15, their mother Madeline, of Slate Hill, brother Andrew Power and his wife Sheri, nieces Kylie and Shannon and nephews Zachary and Alex, all from Little Falls, N.J.

His family's statement reads: “Mike will be remembered as a charismatic, free-wheeling spirit, quick to make friends in any setting, and somewhat skilled on a sand volleyball court.

"Enthusiastic about his primary loves, his children, music, the outdoors and graphic design, Mike made his own way in a path that took him from the streets of Brooklyn to Round Lake Avenue, Hollywood and beyond.

"His passion for acting was evident and we can only imagine if Monroe had a more vibrant independent film scene, if we would be eulogizing the next Jeff Bridges – for these qualities, his humor and more Mike will be remembered (and missed) by friends and family.

"With them in mind, please consider a donation to assist Mike’s family, particularly as they grieve and imagine a future without their beloved father, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend.

"All proceeds from this request will finance the costs of Mike’s interment and services with any balance forwarded to the children, Hannah & Cecelia. Rest in peace, Michael.”
