Funeral Mass June 14 at St. Francis of Assisi for Michael Hurton

Michael Hurton, former resident of Mount Kisco, NY, passed away peacefully at his home in Wappingers Falls, NY on Tuesday, June 10, 2014. The son of Patrick and Margaret (Power) Hurton, he was born on January 3, 1928 in Dungarvan, County Waterford, Ireland and attended the Christian Brothers schools.

He arrived in the United States in 1951 and went into the Army in 1952, where he served in Korea and Japan.

Predeceased by his wife, Angelina (Perri), he is survived by his daughters Rosemary Beliakoff (Douglas) of Costa Mesa, California, and Sheila DuPell of Stormville, New York, his grandchildren James DuPell, Teddi Beliakoff and Michael Beliakoff, his sister Joan Johnstone (John) and brother John (Eileen), in addition to numerous nieces and nephews. He was also predeceased by his siblings Pauline, Patrick, Greta, Doris, Maurice and Mossy.

Mike worked at Kensico Tube for 21 years and later was employed by the Bedford Central School District, becoming an avid golfer upon his retirement.

A longtime active member of the Frank Fox Division 16 of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, which he joined in the mid 1950's, he served as president for two years and was instrumental in increasing their membership. In addition to being active in the Hibernians, Mike was the second vice commander of the Moses Taylor, Jr. Post 136 of the American Legion, as well as a member of the Sisqua Council #1852, Knights of Columbus , the Waterford Men's Association of New York and an usher at St. Francis of Assisi Church.

Mike was a lover of most sports, baseball and boxing topping the list, but he also followed Gaelic sports, especially the football and hurling finals in Ireland. Most of all, Mike will be remembered for his beautiful tenor voice and his love of singing. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Friends may call from Friday 3-5 and 7-9 PM at the Cassidy-Flynn Funeral Home, 288 East Main Street, Mount Kisco, 914-666-4840. Funeral Mass will be celebrated Saturday, 12:30 PM at St. Francis of Assisi Church. In lieu of flowers the family wishes contributions be made to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.
