Michael R. Dennehy, 55, of West Yarmouth, previously of Randolph passed away on May 6, 2024 after the most courageous battle with ALS. Born to Carol Dennehy and the late Robert Dennehy, Mike is survived by his loving wife Julie (Hubbard) Dennehy who had the pleasure of taking care of him through his battle. Mike leaves behind a legacy of love with his children Liam (fiancé Ryann McIntire) of Chatham, Sean and Ryan Dennehy of Harwich. Mike was most proud of his boys and they were the apple of his beautiful blue eyes. He was an amazing Dad and taught his boys so many life lessons through the years that they will always treasure.

Mike accomplished so much in his career. He passed Nursing School and ended up in Medical Device Sales. His most loved job was when he joined Cook Medical. Not only did he love his job and looked forward to it every day, but he gained amazing lifelong friends who became family to him and Julie. After coming home from work, he would jump on the golf course that abuts his home and play 9 quick holes every chance he got. Mike was so talented and gifted. He learned a lot from his Dad and could make, build or fix anything.

Mike is also survived by his caring siblings Peggy Hambly (Paul) of Mashpee, Steven Dennehy (Christine) of Norton and Kellie O’Brien (Tom) of Holden. His mother and father-in-law Patricia and Tom Hubbard of Marshfield, sister-in-law Cathy Reilly (Jeff) of Hingham, brother-in-law Tom Hubbard (Sam) of San Francisco and his best pal and caretaker Michael Hubbard (Mashpee). Mike and Michael had an incredible bond and Mike looked forward to Michael’s daily visits and banter about the news of the day and also hearing about his treasures he would proudly show off. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews who adored him as “Uncle Mike”. Mike’s cousin John was like another brother to him and they shared the same sense of humor.

Mike was a veteran of the US Army and proudly served our Country. If not for the assistance from the VA, Mike and Julie would not have been able to manage this horrific disease. We are forever grateful for their assistance and would like to thank Dr. Thakore, Naomi, Michelle and Bernadette for all their compassion and assistance through this journey. We would also like to thank the VNA Hospice team that also became family to us. Cindy, Scotty, Lori…we love you guys and are so grateful for your love, gentle caring ways and support. Finally, our CCALS family. Ron Hoffman…thank you. CCALS has been a God send to us.

Mike leaves a legacy of love and kindness that will never be forgotten. He was incredibly generous and was always looking for ways to help others. He embodied the best qualities of love, strength and a strong devotion to his family and friends. If Mike loved you, he told you all the time. He will be deeply missed by all who shared this love with him and his memory will live on in the hearts of all of us. We are all better people for having him in our lives.
