ROCHESTER - Michael Jake Faucher, loving husband and father, died unexpectedly on Monday, November 4, 2019 from a massive heart attack at the age of 45.
Michael was born and raised in Rochester, the only son of Krystyna Faucher Tarling and Jacques (Jake) Faucher. He graduated from Spaulding High School in 1992. He worked at UNH as an IT Technician for over 10 years.
Michael married the love of his life, Tisha (Ducharme) Faucher in 2000. He was a devoted husband of almost 20 years and an active, loving, and involved father to his beautiful children, daughter Haley (14) and son Hagan (9).
Michael was a hardworking, supportive, loyal, 'tell you like it is' kind of man, with a great sense of humor. He enjoyed riding his Harley Davidson and snowmobile with his buddies. He was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved camping and hiking with his family and friends and exploring new places. In his short time with his children, he has instilled these values and his love of the outdoors, teaching them how to shoot a .22, shoot their first bow, ride a dirt bike, coach Hagan in baseball and encouraging Haley to play the drums, as they shared their love of music.
Michael is also survived by his only sister, Paula Bado and her four children Jeremy Faucher, Casey Bado, Skyler Bado and Hannah Tibbetts; many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and close friends we call family.
He was predeceased by his grandparents, Stanislawa and Bernard Gajewski and Rolande and Joseph Faucher.
