Obituary of Mike Walsh
Myles (Mike) Walsh was born in New York City on June 7, 1937. He went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, September 8, 2021 at the age of 84.
He was the son of Myles and Dorothy Warwick Walsh of Queens, NY, and also a husband, brother, father and grandfather. He is survived by his wife of almost 60 years, Diana Walsh; his sister Martha Hidalgo and her husband Carlos Hidalgo; and his three grown sons, James and his wife Sharon; Marc; and Richard and his wife Michelle. His first son, Robert, passed away in January 2009. Mike was also blessed with two grown grandsons, Thomas and Matthew Walsh.
Mike had been teaching as a professor in several state colleges since 1982. He developed website and PC-based applications. Prior to 1989, he worked in the Information Systems field for thirty years with American Airlines and CBS where he held executive positions in News, Broadcasting and Records. His greatest joy was teaching the Bible with men at the Good Shepherd Mission in Paterson, and he also participated in and facilitated Bible studies in neighborhood groups.
As an author, Mike had published about fifty articles and at least 10 books. The latest computer books he had published were What Managers and Users Need to Know Need to Know, Productivity Sand Traps and Reflections of a Vintage Computer Guy.
In 2015, his books Life’s Alternatives and God’s Messengers Don’t Always Speak were published. In 2019, he had published Is God Finished With Israel? and a few more.
Mike earned an MBS in Computer Sciences at St. John University and an MA in Biblical Studies at Nyack College, Alliance Theological Seminary in 2017.
Mike will be remembered by his family and friends as a good and committed man dedicated to live his beliefs in his Lord and Savior, and his love for his family, friends and the church.
Perhaps the best way to celebrate Mike Walsh is to see the impact that was made and the legacy that was left behind by a man who loved God with all his heart, mind, soul and strength—his family and friends.
One of many favorite verses in the Bible that Mike reflected in his life was the following: “For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better” (Philippians 1:21).
