South Beaver Township



Captain Michel M. Bauthier (ret.) of South Beaver went into the loving arms of Christ his savior on August 1, 2020 after a long battle with advanced prostate cancer.  He was a man full of love for his Lord, his family and the world and it showed in the leadership roles he served in the community and Pathway Church in Chippewa.  By God’s help he lived a life of generosity and shared the tender grace and mercy Jesus freely gives to all who accept it.

He was hooked on flying from his first lesson and loved being a pilot for over 44 years.  Thirty-two of those years he flew for USAir/American and considered it a privilege to work at a job he loved with people he cared about.  He never got tired of the view from the air.

He will be dearly missed by his wife, Elizabeth of 43 years, along with their 4 children and their spouses- Christine, Valerie (Tim), Karen (Carl), Stephen (Melissa), Grandkids Luke, Myla, Clarabelle, Jane, Hannah Mei, Barrett and Caleb will be forever touched by their Bonpa.

Mike leaves behind his brother Frederic (Margaret) their children Marc and Nicole, 2 half -sisters Dominique (Nick) Peck and Caroline Bauthier and their children, and many aunts, cousins in the United States, Belgium and South Africa.

To honor Mike and his spirit of generosity we encourage you to give a donation to the charity of your choice and share with the family why that organization is dear to you.

Because of COVID a private family celebration of life will take place at this time.

Arrangements were handled by Gabauer-Lutton Funeral Home- 117 Blackhawk Road, Chippewa Twp.

  1. Michel visited our family many times during the week my father, Frank Wilson, was in hospice. Michel provided so much spiritual encouragement with each visit. His presence provided comfort and reassurance of the Lord’s care for us. We also appreciated the time Elizabeth visited as well. We are praying for the family during this time and hope this tribute, while not in person will give strength to everyone.

    To the friends and family of Mr. Bauthier,
    We are truly sad for your loss. Our prayers and thoughts are frequent for those who suffer due to the anguish of losing a loved one. We all experience this loss but the Bible teaches that God shares your loss and your pain at Psalm 116:15.
    The scriptures brought us comfort when my mother in law passed and I hope it helps at this most difficult time because those who pass on are precious in His eyes. For more comfort from the Bible please visit
