I know it has been a long time since we seen each other. I remember when my father would say to us kids . Get in the station Wagon we are going to see the Platt's. We were all excited. We alway had a great time with you and your family. I remember saying to myself as a young teenager. Boy do I have a handsome cousin. Just spending time with you and the family was the greatest thing.
. I'm happy your no longer suffering and in a bigger and better place. Your with the rest of our family. May you rest in peace. My love and prays to your loves ones. Michael will always be watching down you all. God Bless you all May he give you strength.

My heart hurts from the news that my old friend and classmate has passed. He was such a good man, and friend. Mike knew I was having trouble holding on to my house after my ex husband died, and he found a buyer for me. He was a lifesaver.
I want to express my most heartfelt condolences to his wife, and his family. I am in FL and can't be there to pay my respects. I pray for God's comfort through this very sad time, for all that loved Mike. He will always be remembered for his warm smile, and infectious laugh.

Biography

Mike was born on August 19, 1949 in Manhattan, NY. His parents were Bob and Marie. Mike was raised in North Babylon with his four siblings. He had one brother Bobby and three sisters, Eileen (deceased), Gloria "Cookie", and Ann Marie.

Mike graduated from North Babylon High School. In his spare time growing up, he liked to work on cars. Mike was sought after by people who recognized that he was generous with his time and energy. While growing up, some of his best friends were Ricky Regula and Joey Raimondi. Later in life, he became friends with Tom Morris, Herb Whalen, Steve Wilson, Roy DiMartino, Vince Russell, Pete Barba, and Brian Castaglia, as well as his brother-in-laws Dennis O'Connell, Kevin O'Connell, and Chris Gentile.

Mike enjoyed children and teaching his son Brian about hard work and reliability.

Mike was most in his element in his workplace. Mike was a expert plumber with a strong drive to please his customers. His personal initiative inspired those around him. He was self-employed for 40 years at Platt Plumbing & Heating. Mike always did what was necessary in order to get the job done and went out of his way to help his colleagues, including doing plumbing work for Habitat for Humanity and other organizations his friends were involved in.

Mike's passion for finding a better way to do things was often an end in itself for him. In fact, that interest by itself became something of a hobby for this perpetual problem solver. His favorite pursuits were traveling, watching movies, and dining out with friends. Mike was also a sports fan and enjoyed following the Yankees and Rangers. Having the opportunity to visit and explore a new place always intrigued Mike. Favorite vacations included Aruba, Antigua, Ireland, and Portugal.

In retirement, he found new pleasure in traveling with friends and gathering with family. Even in retirement, Mike continued to stay in touch with his old friends.

Mike passed away on October 25, 2020 at Massapequa Center Rehabilitation and Nursing. He is survived by his wife, Kathy, his son Brian, and his surviving siblings Bobby, Cookie and Ann Marie, and many nieces and nephews. Services were held at St. Patrick's Church in Bay Shore, NY. Mike was laid to rest in St. Charles Cemetery in Farmingdale, NY.

During his lifetime, nothing appeared impossible to Mike. He met the words “it can’t be done” with the enthusiastic challenge of a “wanna bet” attitude. Mike was able to recognize the possibilities a new idea held, even when those around him could not. For Mike, the traditional way of doing things fell short of his expectations, especially if there were original and untested methods for handling a challenge.
