Michael was a hard-working family man who dedicated his life to his family, his company, his coworkers and friends. He had a larger than life personality, a captivating smile, a witty sense of humor, and a great welcoming hug.
As one of his friends described him: “Over the years I’ve realized that while I felt like a special person in his life, he had the uncanny ability to make many, many people feel that way. That is the kind of magic dust you don’t come across too often in Life.”
Even with his travel schedule and company responsibilities, Mike was a great family man. He was proud of his Irish/Italian heritage and in his younger years he traveled to Italy with his family and to Ireland twice with his aunt and brother.
He always carved out time to attend his children’s school events, sporting activities, and various club programs.
He relished giving birthday parties for them, one just for family, and another larger one with many friends and their families. He loved the holidays and always insisted hosting his family at his home since his return to Westborough. In summer he enjoyed his downtime on the beaches in Marshfield and Yarmouth.
Mike was also a rabid sports enthusiast for all his Boston teams, regularly attending games, including the Super Bowl in Arizona, where Mike’s end zone seat witnessed the game winning interception. He also attended three Red Sox World Series championship season games. He had a passion for golf and when traveling to Denver or Arizona, he always carved out time for a round. He was currently a member of Hopkinton Country Club. One of his favorite golf memories was attending 2019 final round of the Masters with his Dad where they witnessed Tiger Woods Win.
