Michael S. Wiley

March 7, 1964 - May 15, 2021

Michael Steven Wiley, 57, of Hamilton New Jersey, passed away very peacefully on Saturday, May 15, 2021, at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in Hamilton.

Michael was born and raised in Trenton, New Jersey where he was a lifelong resident that was loved by many. Michael spent his last moments making memories with many neighbors and children in the area. He would go by “uncle Mike” to everyone. Michael enjoyed giving a helping hand to the children around the area whenever they needed it. Michael was a self-employed painter who loved any kind of nature. He also enjoyed fishing, landscaping, refinishing furniture and was very creative in different ways. Mike was a happy go lucky man and was always willing to help his family, friends, Bromley family and animals.

Predeceased by his mother Joyce E. Wiley of Morrisville Pennsylvania. He is survived by his three children, Michael McKelvey, Cat McKelvey and Landon Kaminsky; two grandchildren; his baby sis, Patricia Wiley-Heil, 5 nieces (Michele, Janette, Jackie, Crystal, Denise) 6 nephews (Erich, Raymond, Michael, Anthony, Nathaniel, Nicholas) and many great nephews, nieces, relatives, and dear friends. Michael shared one special bond with his nephew Matthew who he showed how to cut the grass and many life lessons as a man. In Michael’s years of life, he held one special friendship for 30 years with a Lady by the name of Bonnie Fails.

Michaels last wishes were to let everyone know to live life to the fullest and do not cry that he is gone. During Mikes final days, he did not suffer, he did not cry once, and he did not give up. He simply walked towards the lights and became the bald eagle he wanted to always see.

Visitation for the family and friends will be held Friday, May 21, 2021, from 2:00pm-4:00pm at the Buklad-Merlino Memorial Home, 2141 South Broad Street in Hamilton.

Cremation will be held privately.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to the Cancer Center of Hamilton at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, 2575 Klockner Rd, Hamilton Township NJ 08690 or Autism Speaks, 1060 State Road, Second Floor Princeton, NJ 08540.
