Michael David McDonald, 37, born on Dec. 16, 1981, went to be with the Lord on July 22, 2019. He leaves behind his mother, Lynne McDonald Rebelo and her husband, Vasco Rebello, and father, John McDonald Jr. He was the grandson of the late John and Delores McDonald of East Providence and Frank Andrews Sr. and Janet Andrews of Bristol.

Michael lived his life to the fullest, with a new adventure every day. He found tremendous joy in all outdoor sports, mostly hunting in the deep woods of Maine with his father, or riding through the woods of Maine on four-wheelers. He also found joy in mountain biking and hockey. He was an avid fan of the Patriots and Bruins.

Michael grew up in Bristol and graduated from Mt. Hope High School in 2000. He attended and graduated from New England Tech with a degree in Physical Therapy Assisting.

He will be remembered for his bright smile, his laughter, his quick wit and his big heart. He had a talent for being genuine, serious and sarcastic, all at the same time.

Friends and relatives all are invited to attend a Celebration of Michael’s life on Sept. 15, 2019, at Independence Park in Bristol, from 2 to 4 p.m.
