The local community is mourning the death of a Tecumseh firefighter and engineer with the City of Windsor killed in a motorcycle crash last Friday night.
Michael Anthony Abaldo, 38, was riding his motorcycle when he collided with a motor vehicle. It happened on Sept. 25th at around 6:30 p.m. on Highway 3 west of Walker Road.
The driver of the motor vehicle sustained only minor injuries and has not been identified at this time. Essex County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are still actively investigating the fatal collision and urging anyone with information to please come forward. Anonymous tips can also be made through Crime Stoppers.
Many who personally knew and worked with Abaldo remember him as a great public servant. Deputy Chief of Tecumseh Fire and Rescue Services Kevin Kavanagh says that Abaldo was always volunteering for the good of the community, giving back in any way he could. “He was a quiet guy, a great guy, who always went about his business in a professional manner,” he said.
According to Windsor Star, Abaldo was born and raised in the area, obtaining a civil engineering degree at the University of Windsor and earning a master’s degree at Lawrence Technological University in Michigan. Before becoming a firefighter, Abaldo was already working as an engineer for several years.
A private family service has been arranged. Abaldo is survived by his family, friends, and coworkers.
