Michael Hernandez

Michael Hernandez, a talented registered nurse, and 33-year resident of West Bath, ME, died unexpectedly on June 19, 2017 while vacationing in Mexico.

Michael is survived by the love of his life, Lisa Baker Boyle of West Bath, his sister Sandra Kane in California, and countless friends who consider him family.

Born on September 14, 1958 in New York City, Michael’s parents had immigrated to America after leaving Puerto Rico. Following his mother’s death when he was only 16, he took on multiple jobs to help support his father and sister.

He was a graduate of St. Regis High School in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. He relocated to Midcoast Maine and became the first year-round chef at Cook’s Lobster House after teaching himself to cook. He would eventually put himself through nursing school, earning his registered nursing degree.

During his tenure at the Midcoast Hospital and 24 years as the Admissions Director for the Rousseau Management, Inc. (Horizons Dionne Commons, and Coastal Shores), Michael touched many lives and was a committed advocate for patients in need of medical care.

Michael’s friends and those who were helped through his professional endeavors will remember his compassion and devotion to others. He was a hard worker and never took his life or his friendships for granted. He was a role model, and the perfect gentleman. He lived his life to the fullest, and did everything with love. Michael’s kindness and generosity touched everyone he met.

He will be deeply missed by many, his spirit and generosity will never be forgotten.

A Celebration of Life for friends and family at Coastal Landing in Brunswick from 3-6pm on Thursday June 29, 2017.
