Michele was born on April 5, 1938 in Castelpetroso, Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1960. In 1964, he married Lucia Zappetalle Carlucci, the love of his life.

His life revolved around his family and he enjoyed spending his free time at his lakefront cottage in Hnausa. Michele enjoyed traveling in either his motor home or his bright white Cadillac. Michele was a skilled handyman and was always generous and willing to help family and friends.
