GRIFF, Michael Edward of Coram on May 10, 2021. Devoted father of Jason Griff. Beloved brother of Andrea Nugent (Tom). Cherished fiancé of Angela Palenik.

“ The universal trait of life is that life itself is finite. We all share a common destination, it is within the journey where freedom allows us to define our existence. Michael was a man who understood and took advantage of this opportunity. In every area of his life, he would focus on extracting the joy from each moment while demanding the most from himself. His “all or nothing” mentality has inspired those close to him and should be used to propel our ambitions, both for the present and future. ”

I met Michael through kind of an ex mutual friend, his ex roommate. I think we actually connected more on a friendship level. He was so fun loving and I remember going on rides on his bike with him and they were awesome. He was an excellent driver, so I’m just taking it as it was his time to go and he was doing what he loved. One thing I do know is how much he loved his son and how proud he was of him. I met Jason a few times and he was such a smart and respectful young man and he meant the world to Michael he really did. So Jason always know that your father loves you beyond anything and is so proud of you never forget that. Mike really was a good egg he really was. What’s that saying, only the good die young. I still cannot believe you’re gone Love you and miss you my friend. Xoxo 😘🙏😢

I grew up with mike living on Joni drive and me hanging out at the monteforte house in the Joni drive circle, mike was a great friend always reached out to see if you were ok and needed help. I know mike since we were 15 yr’s old. So 40 yr’s later. Mike is gone. I will alway’s think of my good friend from my teenage year’s.
Here is a true story. I was invited to a pool party. So I took mike along. As all our friends stood around the BBQ grille. Mike decides to take his cloth’s off n jump in the pool, we said mike “this isnt a skinny dipping party. We all laughed, I will never forget mike
