Michael Timothy Finney, 59, of Southampton, New York, died February 6th, 2020 as a result of complications following an aortic dissection that occurred December 31st, 2019. He was born September 30th, 1960 at Southampton Hospital to Lawrence M. Finney Sr. and Cornelia Finney. Michael lived in Southampton all of his life, attending Southampton High School, and working many jobs in and around the village. He shared a passion for cars with his father and two brothers, and worked for many years as the manager of Suffolk Foreign Auto. Michael’s love of cars lead him to becoming a member of the Eastern Motor Racing Association, racing on local tracks like Bridgehampton Race Circuit, and serving on a pit crew at The 24 hours of Daytona race in Daytona, Florida. His passion to drive took him on cross country road trips to spend time with friends in California and Arizona. In recent years, Michael worked as a professional car service driver. Michael will be remembered by friends and family for his love of music and reading, his sense of humor, and the long hours spent in conversation with friends at Besim's cigar store on Jobs Lane. He was predeceased by his brother Lawrence M. Finney Jr. and his mother Cornelia Finney. He is survived by his father Lawrence M. Finney Sr, brother Jonathan Finney and wife Shireen, uncle Curtis Finney and wife Nancy, uncle Wendell Mealy and wife Florida, niece Jennifer Auraemo, niece Ine Rudansky and husband Andrew, grandniece Rumi Rudansky and a host of very dear cousins and friends.
