I have known Michael for over 60 years. We met in Brooklyn, as new immigrants from Italy, while in Junior High School, PS 162. My memories of Michael and his wonderful character & personality are many and I feel blessed to have been one of his long time best friends. He was a true friend and we shared many occasions together. He always talked about his loving wife Marianne, his children Juliann, and Diane, and his precious grandchildren. But once in a while he would sneak in some words about his "Big Red". That was his lifetime hobby, keeping that red Cadillac in running condition, with all original equipment, and of coarse clean and shiny as can be.
I will miss you dear friend, and I will not say "Goodbye", but instead keep the memories fresh in my mind and say "Arrivederci".
Sandy & I will never forget your precious Friendship!

Michael was a beautiful example of a loving and devoted son, brother, husband, father and nonno.
We have fond memories of visits to New Jersey and Florida where great hospitality and good conversation were always on offer. His home museum of Yankees and Mets memorabilia was unforgettable.
May you rest peacefully Uncle Mike and may God bless your beautiful wife Marianne and your family.
