Michael Norman Lebrun

October 31, 1956 ~ January 30, 2023

It is with a heavy heart that we announce Michael Norman Lebrun of Vero Beach, Florida passed away in his home on January 30, 2023 surrounded by his family after a long-term battle with post-cancer related illnesses. He was born in Munich Germany on a US Military Base to Normand and Anna Lebrun, and grew up in Tennessee and Rhode Island. He had been a resident of Vero Beach for the last five years after relocating from Massachusetts. He was a hair stylist by trade, and was the owner and operator of Lauren Craig Salon in Wayland, Massachusetts.

He leaves behind his beloved wife, Marie “Terry” Lebrun, whom he was married to for 44 years after meeting in high school in Woonsocket, RI. He is also survived by his daughter Lauren Hoogendyk, son-in-law Dennis Hoogendyk, and grandson Anders Hoogendyk; his son Craig Lebrun, daughter-in-law Karina Lebrun, and granddaughter Elise Lebrun; and his siblings Linda Parenteau, Lori Towne and Richard Lebrun. The family will be arranging a memorial service to celebrate Michael’s life and spirit in Massachusetts in the spring.

Mike, my life was forever changed by your kindness and acceptance. You gave me an opportunity to have a fantastic career that I had no real idea of how it would shape me. You were a tremendous mentor when I needed guidance . And a true friend with zero judgement. Thanks for believing in me. May the afterlife treat you as well as you treated the people around you! You will be missed more than you will ever know❤️

Michael, I just can’t believe that you’re gone. You were a friend, a mentor and a great boss. There was never a dull moment with you around. I’ll always remember your big, booming laugh through out the salon. Rest in peace my friend. None of us who knew you will ever forget you or stop telling stories about the crazy times we had together.

Terry,Craig and Lauren-my deepest sympathy to you. Michael was an amazing person and I feel so fortunate to have known him for 35 years. I have such wonderful memories of him. He was so wonderful on my wedding day to make my hair so beautiful and he was the only one I would trust to do the first hair cut of Stephen and Thomas. Michael has such a special place in my heart.

Terry, lauren and Craig,
There are no words to express the heartbreak my heart feels for you and the heartbreak he felt leaving you.Having known and worked with him for 37yrs. most of those years in the chair right next to him. I’ve heard so many stories. sometimes 6-8 times a day with each client!! They were always about you all. He loves you guys so much. That was just one of the things I loved about him so much. He was the most amazing husband, father, now grandfather and friend. He loved his job, he loved people, he loved to talk
( my 8 hr car ride with him to maine) never a quiet moment with Mike!!! He was so funny, always laughing and loving life. There truly was no one greater than mike. He knew how to LOVE…. He LOVED big!! I’m so Thankful to God for blessing me with my forever friend!!! Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers!!!!
love you, Tracey

So sad to hear of Michael’s passing!! He was always ready with a smile and a genuine warm greeting when J came into the salon. I was always amazed how he could remember my name and everyone that came through the door….quick to offer help when I needed advice for alternative hair color when I ‘sprouted’ an allergy and ready with expert professional advice with a human quality and humor to spare that I so admired!! It has been a good life .. a courageous battle was fought and now I wish you RIP, dear Michael!!!

Michael you were so much more than our boss. Your infectious laugh could be heard all through the salon and made us smile. You treated us like we were one of your own children. I always wanted to make you proud. Your legacy and memory will never be forgotten. What you created at Lauren Craig was truly magical and I’m forever grateful for knowing you. Rest easy and so much love.

Dear Terry, Lauren, and Craig,
I am heart-broken to learn of Michael’s passing. I’m so sorry for your loss. I can still remember my first meeting with Michael over 20 years ago. He was a great listener who cut my hair just like I wanted. And I saw him ever since, at 3 different salons, until he retired – minus when he was ill. Michael had a joy of life that was infectious – he loved spending time with his family; listening to music and attending live concerts; and he loved his job. His infectious smile as he shared funny stories made the time fly by every appointment. I enjoyed listening to the bickering among the staff especially when it was in reference to the temperature inside the salon: to cold vs to hot. The world lost an incredible human whose soul touched a lot of lives. I hope you all find comfort in our Michael stories. Wishing him peace with no more pain and suffering.

To Terry, Lauren, Craig, and your entire family…I am so sorry that Michael left us way too soon. For nearly 30 years, his warm personality and infectious laugh made my trips to the salon so much fun. His teams always reflected the wonderful culture he created. I missed seeing Michael after he had left for Florida full time. A year ago, however, my wife and I were at the West Palm Airport, returning from time we had spent with close friends in Jupiter. Having been at the airport for many hours due to flight delays, we sat exhausted in the terminal late at night, when a familiar voice called out, “Marty?” Yes, it was Michael, waiting to catch the same flight to Boston. Ironically, that long flight delay ironically became a gift, because it brought us together one more time. I will miss Michael, as will everyone who knew him; and I am so grateful that life had brought us together for so many years. Rest in peace, my friend.

To Terri, Lauren, Craig and Family. Our deepest sympathies and love to you all! When I think of Michael I think of his incredibly warm heart, generosity, and kindness. I will never forget the gratitude I felt the day my son Justin was able to have his hair cut at his salon. It was an incredible breakthrough for him and it was all because Michael’s patience, understanding and skill. For so many children with Autism haircuts are often very difficult. Michael was not only successful with Justin, but give him the foundation for lifelong success. Michael will forever have a special place in our hearts. Sending you all love and comfort- today and always.

My heart is feeling very heavy. Though it has been many years, I will remember accidentally meeting you on family vacations a few times. I will forever remember meeting you during our teens, through your cousin, Mark. Feeling so grateful for your unconditional friendship. That smile always lit up a room. Everyone who met you, loved you. You have influenced so many lives most that you are unaware of. Keep watch over all of us till we meet again. RIP.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
