Obituary for Michael B DePinto

Michael B. DePinto, known to most of us as “Mikey” passed away on Sunday, November 25, 2018 of an accidental overdose at the young age of 25.

Born on March 22, 1993 in Hackensack Medical Center, Michael spent his early childhood in Bridgewater, NJ and most of his teenage years in Hillsborough, NJ where he graduated Hillsborough Highschool in 2011. Michael played football, karate, loved to climb ANYTHING, enjoyed playing video games, scuba diving, listening to music 24/7, trying new foods (he was especially fond of sushi and oysters), but most of all being with family and friends.

However, Michael’s number one passion was to help others. He had a profound impact on every single person he had contact with. When he walked into a room, his energy just filled the entire space and that dimpled smile lit up the world. Michael was extremely intelligent and relished engaging in philosophical conversations and the meaning of life.

Some other words that best describe Mikey: loyal to family but especially to his friends (he would defend any injustice), gregarious, extremely affectionate (he gave the warmest, longest, most heartfelt hugs), compassionate, generous (if Mikey had only $10 in his pocket, he would give the homeless man on the street he passed $5 without hesitation. I know, because I his mother had witnessed this), flawed, deeply insecure yet fearless beyond measure, humble, strong beyond imagination, and perhaps most of all a “borrowed” angel on earth who God needed to call back. We all now have an ally on our side in heaven.

Michael will be forever remembered by loving parents Michael and Sherry DePinto and by his beautiful sister Sarah, his maternal Grandmother Arline Romagnoli and his paternal Grandmother Anne DePinto. He will also be remembered by his Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and friends.

A Celebration of Michael’s life will be held on Sunday, December 2, 2018 at 1pm-5pm at the Hillsborough Funeral Home, 796 US Highway 206, Hillsborough, NJ 08844. Please see their website for details and directions.

Funeral services will be held 10 AM Monday, December 3, 2018 at Hillsborough Funeral Home, 796 Us Hwy 206, Hillsborough, NJ 08844, with the Msgr. Joseph G. Celano of the Catholic Center at Rutgers, officiating. A Committal Service will follow at St. Bernard Cemetery, 551 Route 28, Bridgewater, NJ.

For those of you who would like to visit Michael’s final resting place he will be in St. Bernard Cemetery, Mausoleum Bldg 4, Patio of St. Josephs, Crypt 8, Level A. I know he would welcome the conversations. 

In lieu of Flowers the family would appreciate memorial donations to help with unexpected funeral costs. Feel free to reach out to his mother Sherry DePinto in private messenger on Facebook.
