Obituary of Michael Joseph McCusty

Michael Joseph McCusty, beloved partner, father, son, and brother, passed away on Tuesday, February 28, 2023, at the age of forty six.

Michael touched the lives of many through his writing, his jokes, and his time as a DJ. We are almost certain he was one of the first people to ever have a LiveJournal. Though his body resided in several places throughout his life, he was perhaps only ever truly at home on the Internet. His taste in film, music, and literature was immaculate. He was truly one of a kind.

Michael was best known for his wit, his way with words, his vast knowledge of and love for film and music, and his ability to absolutely destroy his loved ones at Jeopardy!. Had he made it on-screen, his anecdotes would have surely changed the world. He was kind, patient, accepting, and absolutely brilliant.

Michael is survived by his son Anakin, his partner Gretchen and her two sons, his mother and stepfather, his sister and brother, and his aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
