Michael D. Beha, 1949-2021
New Hartford, NY: Mr. Michael D. Beha, 71, passed away after a courageous battle with cancer, on Wednesday, May 19, 2021, at his home.
Born in Utica, NY, July 27, 1949, Michael was a son of the late Donald A. and Jean (Kelly) Beha. Raised and educated locally, he was a 1967 graduate of UFA. A proud veteran of the Vietnam War, Mr. Beha honorably served his country from 1970-1975, in the US Navy. Upon his honorable discharge, Mike accepted a position with Sears Department Store, from where he retired in 2007, after over 40 years of loyal service. On July 17, 2017, after more than 28 years together, Mike married the former Mary A. (Clark) Briggs, in a private ceremony, at their home, in New Hartford.

He was preceded in death by a sister, Deborah Sullivan; and an aunt, Ednamae "Auntie" Kelly.
Mr. Beha’s funeral mass and celebration of life will commence on Friday morning at 10:00, at Historic Old Saint John’s Church, Utica with military honors.

HAD THE PLEASURE OF WORKING WITH MIKE AT SEARS,ALWAYS RESPECTED HIM A SUPERVISER AND SOMEONE WHO HAD INTEGRITY IN THE WAY HE DID HIS JOB AND HANDLED HIS RESPONSIBILITIES,BUT WHAT I MOST REMEMBER ABOUT MIKE WAS HIS SENCE OF HUMOR AND HIS COMMON SENSE. I THINK THE BEST WAY TO DESCRIBE MIKE WAS HE WAS A COMFORTABLE PERSON TO BE AROUND, ALWAYS POSITIVE ALWAYS SMILING. A REALLY SPECIAL MAN. I FEEL VERY FORTUNATE TO HAVE KNOWN HIM. PETE HRYB
