Michel Raimund De Cortin passed away suddenly January 28th doing what he often did, lending a hand to someone.
He is survived by his mother Viola as well as his three brothers: Edward and his wife Angela, Robert, and David and his wife MaryBeth. He was the son of the late Edward De Cortin. He also leaves 4 nephews and nieces: Jonathan, Kirsten, Caitlin and Michael.
Michel was born September 2, 1970 in Mount Vernon, NY and moved to Woodbury in 1972 where he grew up and lived his life.
Michel had a passion for art, plants and the outdoors and this could be seen through his work in landscaping. After high-school he began working in the plant nursery business and ultimately formed Twin Oaks Horticultural Associates where he was an equal partner with his brother Ed.
Michel enjoyed photography as a hobby, hanging out with close friends, helping anyone who needed a hand but mostly doing what needed to be done for family.
A celebration of his life will be held at a later date. Please visit http://eepurl.com/gf1i0T for further details.
