Michael Anthony Maguire
October 18, 1966- October 23, 2019
Michael Anthony Maguire, 53, of Broomes Island, Maryland passed away on October 23, 2019 at his home. He was born on October 18, 1966 in Washington, D.C. Michael graduated from Northern High School in 1984. After graduation Michael was an Apprentice Carpenter with George Hyman Construction Company. After a few years in the construction business, Michael decided to change professions and follow his dream of becoming a chef. He enrolled and attended Baltimore International Culinary College. After leaving culinary school, he worked in a few local restaurants before relocating to Jacksonville, Florida to accept a position as Executive Chef at Sawgrass Golf and Country Club; the home of The Players Championship Golf Tournament. Here he cooked meals for Tiger Woods and other well-known professional golfers. He was with Sawgrass Golf and Country Club for about eight years before deciding to return to Maryland where he took a position and worked for several years for Stoney’s Restaurants. Several years later, Michael left the restaurant business and went to work for Silva Contracting, a company that specializes in Healthcare Construction. With this company, Michael served as a Superintendent overseeing the revamping and refurbishing of medical buildings. When not working, Michael enjoyed watching the Redskins, the Nationals, and just about any other sport. He also enjoyed crabbing and fishing; but his real passion was spending time with his daughter, Katie.
Michael is survived by his daughter, Katelynn Nichole Maguire, his parents, Jack and Adele Maguire and his long-time girl-friend, Tammy Bowen Beck, as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his brother, Robert S. Maguire, who passed away in 2015.
