East Millinocket – Michael W. “Rocky” LaBreck, 65, died Tuesday, February 11, 2020 at a Bangor hospital. He was born January 18, 1955 in Lincoln, the son of Patrick J. and Leona M. (Francoeur) LaBreck.

Rocky grew up in East Millinocket, and was a graduate of Schenck High School, class of 1974. He was a communicant of St. Peter’s Catholic Church in East Millinocket, and, more recently, St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Brewer. Rocky was a member of St. Martin’s Council #680, Knights of Columbus, where he earned his 4th Degree. He was also actively involved with the Millinocket and Bangor chapters of SUFU (Speaking Up For Us), and was a board member for the state wide program. He was employed at the Great Northern Paper Company East Millinocket Mill for 35 years until his retirement in 2010.

Rocky was an avid sports fan, and could talk sports of all kinds for hours. He loved watching games with his closest friends and would wear his favorite team jersey. His favorite teams, in addition to the Schenck Wolverines, were the Boston Red Sox, Boston Celtics, New England Patriots, and Notre Dame. For many years, he volunteered as a member of the Schenck High School Booster Club.

Rocky will always be remembered for greeting people with a friendly wave and hello. He loved to offer his assistance and volunteer whenever possible. He never wanted to be a burden to anyone. He readily did whatever was asked of him, to the best of his ability. He was the best son, brother, and friend anyone could ever ask for. He was unselfish, caring, generous, and the epitome of a “giver”.

Rocky is survived by his sister, Debbie St. Louis and her husband David; a niece, Rachel Stellato and her husband Joe, and their children Ava, Eli, Link, and Quinn, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends, too numerous to mention.

Friends are invited to visit with the family 5-8 PM Sunday, February 16 at the Lamson Funeral Home, 11 Tamarack Street, Millinocket. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated 11 AM Monday, February 17 at Christ the Divine Mercy Parish, St. Peter’s Catholic Church, 58 Cedar Street, East Millinocket, with the Rev. Bruce Siket, pastor, presider. Spring interment will be at the East Millinocket Cemetery. Gifts in memory of Rocky may be sent to the Schenck High School Booster Club, C/O Schenck High School, 45 North Street, East Millinocket, ME 04430, or to the Millinocket Chapter of SUFU, PO Box 4139

I was deeply saddened to learn of Mike's passing and my deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends. I've had the pleasure of visiting my hometown on a number of occasions over the years to visit family and participate in a variety of sporting events. It's always felt a little strange to coach against my alma mater but it has provided me with some great memories. One of my greatest joys when returning to Schenck High School for a basketball games was having a chance to catch up with my two old buddies, Mike and Miley. Each time I saw them sitting in the stands, I would instantly go over to talk with them. Two nicer people have not walked the face of this earth. Of course our conversations would turn to basketball and who had the best prospects for the upcoming tournament. Many a time did I run into Mike at the old Bangor Auditorium during tournament week. My memory of Mike will always be his genuine smile and his unending enthusiasm for sports. I'm grateful that I had the opportunity to know and spend some time with him over the years. He was what my mother used to refer to as "an angle on earth". He was a wonderful human being who made good use of his time here on earth. May he rest in peace.

I am sorry to hear of Michael's passing. I did not know him well until a friend of mine started going to the Schenck/Stearns games for several years. We would chat a little and always was great even with us being Stearns fans. Attending the Nazarene Church in East I would see him sometime or if we were going through East and he would always smile and wave. My sincere condolences to his family. He was a shining light in East Millinocket.

Dear Debbie & very sorry to hear about your loss, please accept my deepest condolences regarding Mike's passing. He truly was "One Of A Kind", a very unique individual. Looking back to the days when we were growing up on Eastern Ave brings back many wonderful memories. I also had the pleasure of working with Mike for many years at GNP...and got to know him quite well...always willing to help with whatever was needed, going the extra, in all cases he was a friend to all! Its those memories that... despite now gone from sight...keeps him near us for all time. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Guy Duprey

We are deeply saddened by the news of Rocky’s passing. I can still picture him on the side of field vehemently cheering us on and heckling the officials during my time as a high school athlete. I had the privilege to attend a handful of RedSox and other sporting events after I graduated and the knowledge he had and shared with us about professional sports was beyond impressive. It was truly an honor and a blessing to have known this remarkable man and he will surely be missed by everyone in the Katahdin Region and beyond.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful memory Andy! ❤
