I am deeply saddened by the news of Mike's passing.
Mike was such a wonderful person and an amazing engineer.
If I ever approached him with questions when I was a young engineer at USR/3Com, he was always kind and willing to help with a big smile on his face. He will be missed.
My thoughts and prayers are with Mike's family at this difficult time.
May his soul rest in peace.

I worked with Mike for 4 years. He was always considerate and cooperative when I had questions (usually a lot) for him. He would drop everything to help out. He was just a good even tempered guy to be around. Thinking and remembering with warmth about all our interactions together.

I extend my deepest condolences to the Giovannoni family during this time.

I had the pleasure of working for Mike for 5 years, and can say without exaggeration that there is no one I ever worked with that I admired or respected as much as him. He was a rare combination, someone exceptionally bright and ambitious but at the same time unassuming. In any situation you could count on Mike to be the voice of reason.

He was also a friend. We would spend hours in lab debating how the Sopranos would end or whether Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney really liked each other. There were hundreds of conversations like that, nonsense really, but I so wish there could be more. He will always be missed.

Midori, Laura and Michelle,
I want to pass along my deepest regrets for your tragic loss. I hope and pray that you find peace and strength in the wonderful memories of Mike that are your own and those that are being shared with you by his friends and colleagues. It’s these memories that will provide love and strength to us all.

Mike was so many things to me – a genuinely nice person, an excellent engineer, a sports fan, and essentially a simple man who found pleasure and joy in simple things. He hired me in 1996 and we worked together ever since at a string of different companies. Over the last number of years, Mike and I shared “the lab” together at work in Reston and then Herndon. He was my lab buddy; he was my lunch buddy. Always positive, he put up with more than his fair share of my yammering in the lab over the years - and still was always ready to talk through the next issue as my technical sounding board. I was a better engineer because of Mike, and our team – whether at Vinci or Entourage or Tollgrade or Aclara – was better because of Mike.

I truly believe that all of us know that our lives are better because of Mike.

He will be dearly missed, and may he rest in sweet peace.

My most sincere condolences go out to you and the rest of Mike’s family. May peace be with you.

Hard to find words in such circumstances - hard to believe...Mike was always the first to help and figuring out how to make things happen from packing trade shows items to helping me with nonsense algebra MBA homework or organizing office parties. Mike was also the one you could always go to to have a good conversation, discuss cultures and travels, always caring, and with the utmost sincere interest. A lot of fun memories come to mind when I think of Mike. Lots of laughter in the lab with the team. You will be deeply missed Mike. My deepest condolences to the family.

Keep strong.

I am shocked and saddened to hear of my cousin's passing....we were born the same year, just months apart...memories of playing, when he used to visit his grandfather in Indiana, blocks away from my home. My deepest condolences to the family.
Good night my sweet cousin, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!

Michael Giovannoni was my go-to expert for everything line sensors. We worked together heavily in 2018 developing a test spec for overhead line sensors and afterwards would talk back and forth on everything related to testing line sensors and future projects. I hadn't spoke to him since the start of the pandemic, and called this morning to talk about a scaled back capex project. I was shocked he passed away, and was deeply saddened to find this obituary. He was a fine engineer, very level headed and extremely practical. He will be missed.

Mike joined us at DamaNet 35 years ago. I will always remember his positive and friendly style, his contagious team spirit.
Mike, we are grateful to have met you! May you rest in peace in the presence of the Almighty.
Our sincere condolences to his family.
