Michael T. Hatfield, age 67 of Plymouth Meeting, PA died Saturday October 3, 2020 at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania surrounded by his family. Michael was born January 6, 1953 in Staten Island, New York.
He was preceded in death by his parents Herbert and Janet (Ellis) Hatfield.
He was the beloved husband of Beth Ann Diamond Hatfield.
Michael is survived by his wife Beth of 35 years and two children Lindsey and Kyle Hatfield. Also leaving behind his two four legged kids, Lexi and Sadie. He is survived by his younger brother James Hatfield, along with his niece Anna Simpson and nephews, Stephen Simpson and Jason Hatfield.
Michael spent his early years living in Cape May, New Jersey. Then moved to Conshohocken, PA where he graduated from Plymouth Whitemarsh High School class of 1971.
Following high school he served in the United States Navy in Vietnam on the USS Inchon.
He worked as a printer at Archibald Allan Associates and Safeguard. His career was cut short when he finally received his kidney transplant on May 4, 2003. He loved to brag about his 17 year old kidney!
After leaving the service, Michael enjoyed skiing and was a member of the King of Prussia ski club. He also bowled in many different men’s leagues. A fan of all sports but loved playing basketball and softball the most. Recently soccer has been his favorite to watch. But nothing ranks higher than his love of fishing! He loved going deep sea fishing and being down the Jersey shore with his son, brother, and friends. His love of sports was definitely passed on to his kids. He coached basketball, baseball, and soccer and when he wasn’t coaching, he was cheering from the sidelines. His sweet tooth was no secret, Suzy Jo donuts and Dairy Queen milkshakes were his favorite. Michael could talk anyone’s ear off and loved to socialize and talk sports, fishing and the weather.
Michael was a husband, father, brother, uncle, son-in-law, brother-in-law and friend. He will truly be missed. Thank you for all your love and support!
