Michael Carl Emanuelson, 27, of Silver Lake, N.H., passed away Tuesday, Aug. 24, 2021.

Michael Carl Emanuelson

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.

Michael is survived by his mother Ellen (Yandolino) Emanuelson; his father and stepmother, Ward and Susan Emanuelson; his brother Matthew; his stepbrother Christopher Dubois; his stepsister Whitney Dubois; paternal grandparents, Carl and Diana Emanuelson; stepgrandmother Edith Streichner; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Michael is preceded in death by his loving maternal grandparents Jean and Philip Yandolino

Ellen and Matt, I’m so very sorry for your lose of Michael. We’ve all known each other since he and Darien started 1st grade 21 years ago. He was a very special person in the lives he has touched. Never liked to see anyone hurting in any way. He will definitely be missed.

With all our love, Mickey, Bob, Darien and Talia


My sincerest condolences to Mike’s family and friends.

I had the honor of living with Mike while we attended Regis College together and there was so much about him I admired. He was always kind and thoughtful, an unquestionably loyal friend, and the most hardworking and driven person I’ve ever known.

Mike was always the first person to see when I was having a hard time or a bad day, and never hesitated to help however he could. He was also a whole lot of fun and always knew how to raise the spirits of everyone around him. I may have been more than a few years Mike’s senior, but that never stopped me from looking up to him from the day we met.

I will always be grateful for having had the opportunity to get to know Mike as well as I did - he left a lasting impact on me, as I’m sure he has so many others, and I’m truly a better man, husband, brother, son, and friend because of that time.

I’m so very sorry to everyone who’s heart is broken right now and am keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.




So sorry for your loss of your son .

I remember when he was younger seeing you all.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Take care
