Michael Louis DeRosa
9-18-1940 – 3-8/2021
Michael Louis DeRosa of Stony Brook, LI passed away peacefully after a long battle with Kidney Disease. Survived by his loving wife of 57 years and best friend Annette. Loving father of Christopher (Teresa), Matthew (Maria), cherished grandfather of Joseph (Julia), Michael, and Stephen. Mike grew up in the Bronx where he met the love of his life and started his career of over 40 years with Budweiser. He always put his wife, children and grandchildren first but always made old friends and new friends feel special and many friends became his family. Mike enjoyed being with his family, watching his children and grandchildren play sports, cheering on the Yankees, Giants, and Knicks. He also loved taking rides with Annette into the Bronx to reminisce and pick up treats for the family. Mike always had a kind word, a warm smile and a loving way of showing you that you were important to him. He will be missed by so many. We will cherish the beautiful memories he left us with. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the National Kidney Foundation.
