I've known Mike since we were tots on the Crows stumbling around on a sandlot pony league baseball field at the then school #11, through St James School, Jr and Senior High. We delivered the Perth Amboy Evening News as paperboy entrepreneurs .
Along the way we spent several summer vacations together down da sure. We worked at NY Girl Coat in P Amboy. We swept Gadek's Woodbridge Swim Club for membership and worked ourselves up to soda jerks at the concession counter/kitchen and served many of our developing classmates on Teen Night”! We camped out in Donnie Strish’s back yard, as kids.
We routinely corresponded during his service years in Viet Nam.
Sadly, I've only seen him at the few WHS Class of 1969 reunions. I regret losing close contact with him. So... if you feel you can share any info about his life and passing in confidence, I would appreciate it. If not, I understand.

I have always felt so proud and blessed to be your cousin. Although we did not see each other very often, we always kept in touch. The beautiful memories from our childhood will never be forgotten, and I will always miss and love you.

To remember Mike is to remember the good times.. Therefore our “GQ”moment (as you called it) is one of the good times I will remember… Can’t forget the unforgettable….and a “gentleman” he was ….

My dearest Brother-in-law Michael...A great man and a legend in my eyes and in the eyes of many. Loved by everyone that knew him, that was just the type of person he was. He was witty and always doing something to make us laugh. The life of the party. Never stressed or complained about anything and was courageous to the very end. I was blessed to have known him and I will treasure all the wonderful memories I have of you forever. RIP
Love you...

Mike (My Brovoloni), I have written on many of these memory walls, since Covid, for many a close friend but I never thought I would be writing on one for you. I don't warm up to people to quickly, especially when it concerns my family, but ever since day one of you dating my sister, and I meeting you, I felt you were a keeper. So many years have passed since we first met and you were always the kind of person I inspired to be. I will never forget our times together, your sense of humor, loyalty to my sister, and warm heart that truly made you "One Of The Great Ones"! God Speed Brovoloni, knowing that I will not see you at Family Gatherings and just knowing that your not around, at least not physically will leave a big empty spot in my heart. Till we meet again. Your Brovoloni Phil
