Michael Lee Plude

Plude, MichaelGRANVILLE and HUDSON FALLS—Michael Lee Plude, who lived in Hudson Falls for most of his life before moving to Granville, died unexpectedly and entered into the arms of the Lord on Thursday, February 8, 2018, five days before his birthday. He was 51.

Mike was born February 13, 1966, the son of Donald J. and Beatrice L. (Bechard) Plude. He was born with Down syndrome and a permanently dislocated hip that left him unable to walk, but that never affected his zest for life. He had a remarkable effect on all who knew and loved him.

He especially enjoyed parades and marching bands, and in his younger years could often be seen with his parents outside their Winnebago cheering on the marchers. He loved music, especially old country songs and ballads, and would pump his better leg to the music and sing along with his own lyrics, right in tune. In his later years he liked to go to Rick and Carol’s in Fort Ann and dance in his wheelchair.

He also loved long rides in any vehicle. And he liked the water, and if you held your hand under his chest he would kick his legs like he never could in his wheelchair and almost seemed to swim.

In his later years Mike enjoyed going out for pizza with his brother Jeff and sister-in-law Karen and afterward riding around and singing along to Willie Nelson and Hank Williams songs. He also took a big trip to New York City in 2005, accompanied by Nicole Stevens, a former manager of his group home, to see the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.

Mike lived at home in Hudson Falls for most of his life with his parents, and after his father died in 1983, with his mother. He would sit in front of the house at 33 LaBarge Street with his mother and wave to all the passers-by. She lovingly cared for him until 2003, when he moved to a group home in Granville, where he made a whole new group of friends. He attended a day program nearby at CWI Eastpointe.

Mike’s mother died in 2014, and his half brother, Ronald L. Plude, died in 2016.

Left to cherish Mike’s memory are his brother and sister-in-law, Jeffrey and Karen Plude of Bethlehem; his two half nephews, Scott (Pasquela) Plude and Matthew (Sonia) Plude, both of California; a special cousin, Denis Plude of Conshohocken, Pennsylvania; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and caregivers.

There will be no calling hours. Private graveside services and burial will be held in the spring at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Fort Edward.

Donations may be made in Mike’s memory to the National Down Syndrome Society,  8 East 41st Street, 8th Floor, New York, NY 10017, or at www.ndss.org.
