Obituary for Michael John Whelan

Worthington, Minnesota

     Michael John Whelan, 50, of Worthington, formerly of West Virginia, died at his home on Wednesday, February 24, 2010.
     He was born on December 7, 1959, to Arvin and Marianne Whelan. The family moved to Colorado Springs in 1967. He graduated high school in 1977.
     As a boy, he loved riding motorcycles in the mountains with family and friends and cooking out. He joined the Marines in 1980. When he came home, he became a paramedic and then went to school to become a cardiovascular invasive technician, where he became a traveler going to different hospitals wherever they needed him. His last place was Weirton, West Virginia, where they kept him for two years because they thought he was the best they had ever had. He was so loved by family and friends.
     Michael is survived by his mother, Marianne Armstrong; his father, Arvin Whelan and step mother, Bert Whelan; three brothers, Kerry Whelan, Patrick Whelan, and Marty (Sharon) Whelan; one sister, Pamela (Jerry) Roberts; three uncles, Doug (Sharon) Quiring, Daryl (Janice) Quiring, and Eddison (Barbara) Christians, and nieces and nephews.
     Prayer services will be held on Sunday, February 28, 2010, at 1:00 p.m., at the Benson Funeral Home in Worthington, MN, with Pastor Ron Ahlgren officiating.
