He was truly one of a kind. Everything about Michael was infectious, his laugh, his kindness and his ability to always be happy.

He had a special gift of bringing everyone together with smiles on their faces. He was a man of so many talents and passions including skiing, biking, traveling and embracing the best of life.

Michael is survived by his loving wife, Lisa Bandelli, his cherished parents Sylvia and James Virgona, his brother and sister-in-law Brian and Jennifer and their children Chloe, Luke and Everett and Lisa’s parents Jim and Ann Bandelli.
