Michael was born on July 30, 1960 to Violet & Frank in Patchogue, New York. He is survived by wife, best friend, and partner Linda, of 40 years and the joy of his life, his daughter Angela.
Michael had a lot of interests in life. He loved music, cars, drag racing, movies, traveling and football. They enjoyed traveling cross-country. Michael had been to 46 of the 50 States, visiting most while he was a CDL tractor trailer driver.
Mike had a phenomenal ear for sound and music. Any singer or musician who was blessed to have worked with Mike was a better performer for it. Mike also knew the words to thousands of songs but always stayed and sang in the background. He knew music made people happier.
Mike was a strong man that always wanted to help anyone in need. He was taught that he could accomplish anything he set his mind to, and was a natural leader. He was also charming, funny and a prankster at times. Mike would want everyone to remember him with a smile and a fond memory. Please be kind to each other. Mike will never be forgotten.
