Obituary for Michael A. Short

Michael A. Short passed away peacefully on November 27, 2018 at Maris Grove. Born February 23, 1931, he lived a long, joyful life, devoted to his faith and his family.

He is survived by his wife and best friend, Mary (Friel) Short. He was a loving father to his four children: Michael Short (Margie), Bill Short (Kelly), Regina Davies (Scott), and Joe Short (Alice). He was a proud grandfather of his eleven grandchildren: Katie, Allie, and Megan Short, Kristen and Ryan Short, Brandon and Sophia Short, Shannon, Kerrianne, Patrick, and Conor Davies.

Mike was preceded in death by his father, Michael Short; mother, Catharine Short; and three brothers, Chalie, Jimmy and Jackie.

He was born and raised in South Philadelphia where he was a member of Our Lady of Mount Carmel parish and a graduate of Southeast Catholic, Class of 49. He was a veteran of the US Army and was a 4th Degree Knight for the Knights of Columbus. He was a volunteer for the Literacy Council of Delaware County.

Mike was a kind man who would greet everyone with a smile. He took on every battle thrown his way with a positive attitude that was admirable to everyone he knew. He was a very wise and intelligent man who would avidly read and religiously complete the daily crossword puzzle. Mike was a devout Catholic who would frequently lector, serve as a Eucharistic Minister and volunteer at his parish, St. Pius X, in Broomall, and previously for St. Andrews, in Drexel Hill. He enjoyed sports and was a dedicated fan of the Philadelphia Phillies. Above all, Mike was a passionate father and grandfather to all of his children and grandchildren. He was their biggest fan in attendance at all of the graduations, theater performances, concerts, and sporting events.
