Michael E. Dahlen

December 24, 1955 ~ June 9, 2020 (age 64)


Michael E. Dahlen, 64, of Monson, passed away at Baystate Medical Center after a brief battle with cancer. Michael was born in Greenville, Mississippi, on December 24, 1955, the son of the late Henry and Joan (Suthowski) Dahlen. Michael graduated from Cathedral High School in 1974, attended Western New England College and worked at the Wilbraham Post Office as a letter carrier for many years. He was an extremely loyal New York Giants fan, through the good and, more often, bad times.  He adored his family and enjoyed hanging on the back patio with them and the rest of the gang, while tending to a perfectly manicured fire. Michael is survived by his wife of 32 years, Nancy (Baker) Dahlen of Monson, and their three children Tyler Dahlen and Ryan Dahlen of Monson and Mikayla Dahlen of Holland, MA.  In addition to his wife and children, he will be deeply missed by his lifelong best friend, Raymond Courtney of Wilbraham, MA and his beloved aunt and uncle, Rita and David Bishop of Colebrook, CT.  Family and friends will gather and remember Michael on Monday, June 15, 2020 at a graveside service at 10 am in Hillcrest Cemetery in Monson. Arrangements entrusted to the Byron Keenan Funeral Home and Cremation tribute Center, 1858 Allen Street, Springfield. For additional information please visit
