Michael D. Macfarlan


Michael D. Macfarlan, “Mickey,” age 92, died peacefully on Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018, at his home on Great Cranberry Island. After receiving a diagnosis in late December of pancreatic cancer, he returned to the island where he had lived for 55 years.

He was born in Philadelphia in 1925. After attending Brooks School and graduating from Harvard University, he enlisted in the Army in 1944.

He is survived by his two nieces, Ruth and Lisa Freeman, and his two great-nephews, Ned and Bob Swain. A true gentleman with many interests and talents, he will be missed by them and all his friends and neighbors on Great Cranberry.

Know when to pay your respects.
