American DJ Remembers Michael B. Healy

The American DJ family mourns the loss of its dear friend and colleague Michael (Mike) Healy, who passed away suddenly on the morning of Sunday June 26.  Mike was a founding member of the Healy Group, a leading manufacturer’s rep firm serving the music, lighting and consumer electronics industries.  The Healy Group has represented American DJ, American Audio, Elation Professional, Acclaim Lighting, Global Truss and Arriba Cases on the East Coast for over a decade.

Universally loved and respected throughout the American DJ Group of Companies and by all of the retailers he served, Mike was known for his intelligence, integrity and genuine concern for the welfare of others. “We’ve lost more than a valued and respected business advisor,” said Scott Davies, General Manager of the American DJ Group of Companies. “We also lost a true friend. Mike always looked for the best in people and brought out the best in people. It was impossible to spend any time with him and not feel better about life. He will be sorely missed.”

Mike is survived by his wife and best friend of 38 years, Kathleen, his son Christopher, daughter-in-law Kendal, daughter Meghan, and future son-in-law Brett Needham, as well as the two special loves of his life, his grandchildren, Cullen Christopher and Brenna Kate; and his friend, brother and business partner, Timothy Patrick Healy.

Aside from his successful business career, Mike was very active in numerous philanthropic, charitable and community organizations. He was very involved in the Chickahominy Youth Soccer League, an executive board member of the Richmond Strikers and a member of the Glen Allen Ruritan Club. Raised in Alexandria, VA, he graduated from Bishop Ireton High School and attended George Mason University.
