Michael Carl Emanuelson, 27, of Silver Lake, N.H., passed away Tuesday, Aug. 24, 2021.
Michael was born on Jan. 25, 1994, in Wellesley, Mass., to Ward and Ellen (Yandolino) Emanuelson. He (Michael aka Bagels) graduated from Kennett High School in North Conway, N.H., in 2012.
In 2016, he received his bachelor's of science (magna cum laude) in biochemistry (mathematics minor) from Regis College in Weston, Mass. Subsequently, Michael pursued advanced studies in Finance at the University of Nottingham, United Kingdom. He was employed as a financial advisor with McAdam Financial in Boston.
Michael was passionate about sports and academic excellence. At Kennett High School, he was a dedicated football letterman and an enthusiastic lacrosse defenseman and varsity team captain. At Regis College, he was captain of their first NCAA Men’s Varsity Lacrosse Team, which won the championship.
He was on the NCAA Student Athletic Advisory Committee and received the All-high Academic Team award for players who exhibit academic as well as athletic excellence, three times. As Men’s Lacrosse Representative, he coordinated activities with Team Impact, a program to improve quality of life for children with special needs through their participation in collegiate athletics.
Additionally, he received the Most Improved Player Award, Scholar-Athlete Award, and the Coaches Award. While pursuing an accelerated Masters on scholarship at Nottingham he played, coached, and developed training programs to bring his team to finish third place in the nation.
Michael was happiest while playing lacrosse and being around those he loved. His kindness and laughter were contagious. He had an upbeat disposition, always wanted to make everyone around him feel comfortable, and always had a joke to share. He had a special spark and a generous caring heart.
