   Michael Patrick Gailey
(Big Mike)
Resident of Antioch
August 15, 1975 – May 16, 2017

   Michael P. Gailey passed away on Tuesday after a hard fought battle with leukemia. In his short 41 years with us, he touched many lives with his love and loyalty for family, unselfishly helping friends in need, and a soft heart with a gentle touch for all animals.
   Michael was a very loving and nurturing uncle. He spent many hours at play at the park, playing ball, and swimming. Never saying no when asked for his participation. For those who knew and loved him will forever have that special place in their heart.
   Mike was born in Concord, California, and graduated from Antioch High School in 1994. He played multiple sports excelling in all.
   At the age of nine, he started as a helper working with his father at Custom Tiling. He became a tile setter soon after graduating from high school. While working in the trade for 25 years, he became a full partner, eventually taking over the business.
   Mike is survived by his parents, Wayne and Carol Gailey of Antioch; brothers, Johnnie Gailey (Stephanie) of Vallejo and Chris Gailey (Michelle) of Martinez; nieces Samantha and Hannah; nephews, Timothy, Andrew, and Ryan; cousins, Stacey and Mark; lifetime friends, Shawn, Sharie, and Danny; and many other close friends. He also leaves behind his loyal, loving pets, Tippy, Maggie, and Daisy.
   We will forever hold you tightly in our hearts and minds until we are together again. Until then, we will never be whole again.
