Dear Jeanine, Michael, Maria, Alice & Liz & Family, we are so very sorry for your loss. Uncle Mike was truly a one of a kind special man. He may be gone, but he will not be forgotten. A fond memory, as kids, Michael, Maria & I enjoyed going to the Mets games and getting to sit in the Zenith box. What a special treat that was.
May he rest in peace.
Love, Joann, Matt & Fred Voltaggio
