Michael Damian Fitchett, born September 29, 1966 in Camp Pendleton, California, passed away on December 9, 2022.

When his father retired from the Navy in 1976, the family moved to Jamestown, North Dakota, where Michael completed his secondary education, always at the top of his class. While at Jamestown High School, he excelled at singing and playing his bass guitar. He started his own band at the age of 16 and continued playing in multiple bands through his college years.

Michael attended his first year of college at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (Terre Haute, IN). He then transferred to the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota, from which he graduated in 1990. He was a member of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity.

After graduation, Michael lived and worked in the Twin Cities and later, in 1998, moved to Denver, Colorado. Here he was employed in the mortgage business and also worked in accounting. While living in the Denver area, he met and married Brenda Sarconi and their daughter, Megan, was born. He lived for a short time in Grand Island, Nebraska, then moved to Houston, Texas where he worked in the gas industry.

Michael was preceded in death by his father, Capt. Vernon H. Fitchett, MC, USN (Ret). He is survived by his daughter, Megan Kay Fitchett; mother, Kathryn Mikwold; sister, Elizabeth (Michael) Schielke; brother, Benjamin (Lisa) Fitchett; nephews: Tyler Schielke, Austin Schielke, Luke Schielke, Evan Fitchett, Matthew Fitchett; many uncles, aunts, cousins, and loved ones.

Michael’s love of music and singing provided him and those around him good times and enjoyment.  Rest in peace, Michael! God bless you! We love you!

Memorials in Michael’s name are suggested to Vincent DePaul Charity.

    My express condolences to the family. Some of the my best boyhood memories with the boy cousins on the Mullin side were with Michael and his sense of comedy, adventure and mischief during reunions! Always such a pleasure in his company. Rest in peace Michael.

    Dear Aunt Kay, cousins Ben and Liz, please accept my condolences. Mike was kind and funny, talented and gregarious. He will be remembered in many circles. We cousins, not from NE, remained close even after he moved away from Denver (often testing silly jokes back and forth). During his time in Denver, he worked with friends of mine and I want to pass on their condolences as well (Dave, Shanna, Tim and Debbie from TMC). RIP “Chop”.

    My sincere condolences to Kay, Liz, Ben and all the families. Growing up and playing in the band with Mike was by far some of my best memories of youth. Rest in peace my friend. You will be missed
