      WATERBURY CENTER/HYDE PARK - Michael E. Gates, 59, a longtime resident of Waterbury Center and more recently of Hyde Park, passed away unexpectedly at his home July 4, 2012. Born in Munich, Germany, on April 30, 1953, he was the devoted son of the late Maurice E. and Barbara B. (Fisher) Gates. Michael was previously married to Claudine (Bouck) Williams, Jane (DeLaricheliere) Back and Susan CULBERT. Michael was proud to be a fifth-generation Vermonter. He was a 1971 graduate of Essex High School and continued his education at the University of Vermont where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in wildlife biology and later his Master of Science degree in environmental engineering. Michael was employed by the state of Vermont for 30 years in several departments that included the Fish and Wildlife Department, the Department of Health, and the Department of Natural Resources, from which he retired. Michael was known for his great sense of humor. He cherished his time with his family and close friends, especially his granddaughter, Lily Bay. His family lovingly remembers the joy he felt for being outdoors. He was passionate about hunting and enjoyed fishing and kayaking. An avid photographer of fish and wildlife, Michael also contributed articles to the Vermont Sports Magazine. He was a longtime animal lover and was a constant learner and avid reader. Michael is survived by his sons, Jeremy M. Gates and his wife, Jessica, of South Burlington and their daughter, Lily, and Kyle B. Gates, of Essex, and his son, Elijah G. Nadon; his brother, Barrett Gates, and his wife, Jacquelyne, of Morrisville, N.Y.; extended family, as well as his feline companion, Kramer. A celebration of Michael's life will be held from the Waterbury American Legion, 16 Stowe St., Waterbury, July 21, 2012, at 10 a.m. with a reception to follow. Inurnment will take place in the Gates family lot in Waterbury Center Cemetery. The family requests that flowers be omitted; rather memorial gifts would be appreciated to the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Trust Fund (www.vtfishandwildlife.com/support_fwtrust.cfm).
