Michael T. "Mike" Haughan, 51, died Friday, April 12, 2019, surrounded by his loving family.

He was born in Jan. 12, 1968, in Oak Park, the only son of Robert and Joyce Haughan. Michael received a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, followed by a law degree from Chicago-Kent College of Law at IIT.

He started out as an assistant state’s attorney with Boone County prior to working for Albert Altamore & Associates in Rockford for 20 years. In his spare time, Mike volunteered with Cub Scouts and was a Den Leader. Mike was a sportsman who enjoyed many outdoor activities such as fishing, shooting, camping, and hiking. He also liked to garden and make family Halloween costumes.

Mike loved to road trip, visiting many national parks, with Rocky Mountain being his favorite. His favorite pastime was spending time with his family and he will be dearly missed.

He is survived by his devoted wife of 21 years, Elaine; children, Melissa (Matt) Gaige, Monica, James, and Matthew; mother, Joyce; and many other dear relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his father, his uncle, and his beloved dog, Guinness.
