Obituary: Michael ‘Mike’ Hitchcock | Feb. 22, 2023

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Michael “Mike” Hitchcock, who died at home surrounded by family on Feb. 22, 2023, at the age of 64. 

Mike was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. Mike is survived by Christina Hitchcock (nee Henley), wife of 42 years; children Elizabeth (Jason) and Maggie (Kinze); and grandchildren Cameron and Tristan Massatt. Loving brother to James (Sandy), Jeff (Charlotte), Teresa, and John (Sue). A beloved son-in-law to Merrilee Henley, as well as brother-in-law and uncle to many nieces and nephews. 

Mike is preceded in death by his parents, James Lonnie and Anne Hitchcock; brother, Joe Hitchcock; and father-in-law, Tom Henley.

Mike loved tinkering in the garage, playing the stereo loudly, watching wrestling, and spending time with his family. He will be extremely missed by his surviving family.

A Celebration of Life will be held on March 30, 2023, from 4-7 p.m. at FCC Community House, 847 Hutchison Rd. in Flossmoor.
