Michael D. "Mike" Queen

Michael D. “Mike” Queen, age 34, died at home on the afternoon of his birthday, Saturday, August 7, 2021.

Mike was born in Somers Point, NJ, on August 7, 1987. He was a 2006 graduate of Central Columbia High School.

He was an avid Philadelphia Eagles, Flyers, Phillies, and 76ers fan and especially loved the Eagles Super Bowl win over the Patriots in 2018.

He loved playing hockey growing up. Mike enjoyed golfing with his dad, reading, and he loved the beach at Sea Isle City, NJ, where he spent his summers with his sister Alison when they were younger.

Mike was preceded in death by his mother, Donna J. Queen, on September 25, 2016.

He is survived by his father, Michael H. Queen, of Bloomsburg; three beautiful daughters, Khloe, and twins Emberlee and Ellowynn, of Bloomsburg, a sister, Alison Wehrung, and her husband Alex, of Fisherville, VA; two half-brothers: Adam S. Murphy, and his wife Amy, of Douglassville and Ryan M. Murphy, and his wife Ginny, of Wilmington, DE; paternal grandmother, Alberta A. Kincaid, of Gastonia, NC; two aunts: Linda Ferrelli, and her husband Bill, of NJ and Sherry Hite, and her husband Grear, of NC; several cousins in NC, SC, and NJ and three nieces and a nephew in VA, PA and DE.

Mike died alone in his room as the result of an accidental drug overdose. He hated his addiction and what his addiction did to the people that loved him. Every day he hated living that way. He hated that he couldn’t break the grip addiction had on him.

His death ended an 18-year struggle that began after using heroin just two times when he was just 16.

Due to COVID, private services will be held at the convenience of the family.

In lieu of visitation and flowers, his father asks for prayers for his son and for all of those that suffer from addiction. His father also asks for prayers for the arrest and conviction of the POS who sold Mike the drugs that killed him.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of the Dean W. Kriner Inc. Funeral Home & Cremation Service, 325 Market St., Bloomsburg.

Our prayers and condolences go out to the family.

Oh Mike I have no words. Your demons were so much crueler then the ones that many others of us have faced. They were a different breed and lord knows you gave it your all to get out from under them, but now your fight is over. You will not have to fear your demons but only have angels to love. Give your mom a big hug and may your soul finally find some peace. I will forever think of you on August 7 as i have since the day i meet you. You were loved by many and will be missed forever. Rest easy my dear friend.

Prayers for Mike's family. Urgent prayers are being sent to find and arrest the POS who gave him the drugs.

Mikey I'll never forget you brother. You were my best friend in school. Your family was the reason I had any clue how to be a father. You guys took me in and showed me the way I wanted to be as a man. The love that the queen family has put into the world makes it a brighter world for us all. I am truly sorry for the loss. I Love you guys and I really hope you know what Mike did for me being my friend. I owe him. Thank you. Rest in peace my brother.

I'll never be able to repay the friendship we had Mikey. I've missed you for too long brother. Rest in peace and know that you did have a positive influence in the world. You and your families love have guided me for so long. I just thought I might get to tell you someday. I'll always remember our "Road Trips" and Fred Marx or XRAMDERF. Thank you Mike Queen and family. God Bless
