Doris and “Nette”
I just learned of Michaels passing tonight and I am shocked to say the least. My heart is breaking for you both right now.
As u know Michael was my best buddie growing up on Valley Dr. To this day I talk about him and me playing Count Dracula in his room in the dark with the flashlight beaming our long fake fingernails on the wall! Our families were close and we all did fun things together.
Doris, last I saw u was with my mom here in Florida .....Karen and I talked about getting together again. How I wish we did. I am so sorry for the loss of your 3 children and Annettes siblings. I am just at a loss for words.
God bless you both,

I had the honor and pleasure to work with Mike in the past. He was a joy to be around. We were always there to support each other in our work duties and I considered him my friend. I regret not keeping in touch with him recently. May his family and friends take comfort from the Real Peace that only the Lord Jesus Christ can give.
~ Paul Carlucci - September 17, 2019
Michael was there for me whan I needed an ear. He cheered me up, as he did so many other people. Michael was my sounding board, and my hug when I needed it. That is what I think he was put on this earth for. He made everyone smile, laugh, and sometimes made your ribs hurt from laughing, even if your day wasn't going so great. I will always have fond memories of Michael, and I will try to carry on in his footsteps.

I was good friends with Michael in High School and remember his sweetness and humor, he kept all his friends entertained. He was very talented, I was so happy to see him in a few local productions over the years. My condolences to his family and friends.
~ Roseann Beamish - September 14, 2019
Michael was a delight to work with and a pleasure to know!
I got to direct him in Li'l Abner and a couple other shows and to work with him in others He has an incredible sense of humor and timing and always lit up any role he played!
I was so sorry to learn of his crossing which is a great loss to local theater and his friends within in it and the audiences who adored and laughed with him!
I'm so sorry i can't attend the memorial as i will be out of town but my very best to his family and our many mutual friends who i'm sure are crowded around at this sad time!
My thoughts are with you all!!
~ Robert Steingraber - September 13, 2019
I am so shocked and saddened to hear what happened to Mike as of late. I was a coworker in the Cicero pharmacy for several months with Mike and he was a joy to be around. He worked hard daily to make sure every customer felt like the most important person of the moment and I know he had personal relationships with many of them. I admired Mike’s constant kindness, patience and work ethic. He is truly a gem that will be missed by all his customers and coworkers at Kinney Drugs. His kindness and buoyant attitude made a sometimes dreary job much more enjoyable and I will miss him. My deepest condolences and prayers to the close friends and family.
~ Rebecca Hale - September 13, 2019
Sharing the stage with Mike was a joy, a thrill, and sometimes a challenge--he kept the audience riveted on him. In Bye, Bye Birdie by the Fulton Community Theatre I had a marvelous time. And watching him in two local productions of Chicago was a special treat. He was a treasure.

I was honored to work with Michael on many shows with Theater 90. He brought so much energy and showmanship to every production. Of course, you never knew what to expect next: his mind was so active and creative he couldn't help but try out his latest idea for a funny line or action when it popped into his head. You never knew what he might do next, but he learned to keep it appropriate to the text and the scene work (most of the time, anyway!) He had a hundred different characters in his repertoire and he really just wanted all of them to get their turn onstage. But we were always able to find the right character (or meld a number of his characters into the right character) for the show. Audiences loved his antics and quick wit (me, too!) We will miss him always until we see him again. Shaaree Lemos Pierce, director

I would like to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of Michael. It’s been many years but my favorite memories of him are how he loved to entertain and make people laugh. He was a sensitive and caring man. I also know how much he respected and loved his family.
My thoughts are with you,

To Michael's family my deepest sympathy and condolences. Micheala brought me Great smiles and laughs. He always had time to chat and chuckle with me about something.
May he rest in peace.
~ Susann Panek - September 12, 2019
Aunt Doris, Annette, Terry and Family and all extended family.
At times like this, we never know quite what to say, but we hope you know our thoughts are with you now more than ever. Debbie and I are shocked and saddened as well, of Michaels untimely passing. Michael was a ray of sunshine and will be sorely missed. I have fond memories of summer holidays camping as kids, bomb fires and going to the General store to get bags of penny candy with Michael and you Annette.
We are thinking of you and your family at this most difficult time. Our deepest, deepest condolences. Hoping that time is kind to your heart and brings you sweet memories in place of sadness.
Your Cousin Tom and Debbie Gagne

I was so sorry to hear of Michael's passing. Michael and my sister were very good friends in high school, so I got to spend a lot of time with him as well.
I don't think they kept in touch much; however, we always spoke fondly of him and our memories together always made us smile! Well, some of those memories made us belly-laugh! We grew up with our grandparents and they absolutely loved Michael, so he visited often! It was always a treat. He kept us all in stitches. We will remember Michael as a thoughtful, kind and fun loving person who shared his many talents on and off the stage with his brilliant sense of humor and wit!
May your memories comfort you all during this difficult time.
~ Pamela Munger - September 11, 2019
We knew Mike through Clay Town Players. He was a talented and delightful person. We send our deepest sympathy to Mike's family for a friend gone much too soon.
~ Richard and Patricia Swanson - September 10, 2019
We laughed and laughed so hard ,always unable to catch my breath when I was around Michael. So many fond memories and happy times during the years of the
Pompeian Players theater group.One that especially sticks with me is during the production of the King and I. Michael was going to squat down and lift the hooped gown of one of the girls, to scare her. However the curtain rose when he was down so he scooted under her dress. He had to dance her steps, all crouched down throughout the entire number to stay hidden. The rest of us could barely stay composed knowing he was under there!! Fun times in NYC and camping in the Thousand Islands,his laughter echoing across the river.My sincere sympathy to Michael's family at this sad time. I am blessed to have known him.
~ Jeanette Vaccaro Snyder - September 10, 2019
Annette-my heart hurts so much for you and the loss of Michael. My fondest memories are when Michael and you would do magic for me and Carmen. We were always amazed by him! But watching him with my mom and dad and my kids perform as the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz so many years ago was spectacular and better than the original. I Cherish those memories forever. Love to you and Mom...Always your cousin Maria
~ Maria Walter - September 10, 2019
My sincere sympathy to Michael's family and friends. I was blessed to have worked with Michael in Annie, Guys and Dolls and Oklahoma. Of course, keeping a straight face with him was always a challenge, but his generosity as an actor made me a better actress. Heaven is a happier place with Michael and I will always have him in my heart.
~ Glenda House - September 10, 2019
Annette, My mom, my sisters & myself are all thinking of you & praying for you. Our hearts go out to you in this time of sorrow. Michael is so fondly remembered, we love him & are missing him. This world is sadder right now, for he’s moved on from here. He’s with God & he’s safe. Though, we’re missing him, you especially.Annette. He was such a fun & jovial guy. And we are blessed to have so many fond, memories , filled with laughter & fun . Because some of the gifts Michael shared with us was his comedic antics & theatrical talents. Thanks Michael! May God speed you up to Heaven to His theatre there where you can fill Heaven with the joy & laughter we all knew here. And I can see you also embracing & dancing in Heavens streets with your sisters, your dad, as well , all your aunts & uncles & Gma & Gpa of course. Love you Michael! ??????

Words fail me as I, along with so many others, try to grasp the untimely passing of our cousin Michael. From summer childhood memories to the undeniable, gentle man Michael was, we will remember him !! Our thoughts and sympathies are extended to Aunt Doris, Annette(Terry and their young men), Rene, Kristen, Julia, all extended family members and friends.
~ Susan, William McLellan - September 9, 2019
Michael was such an enjoyable person to share the stage with. His humor and enthusiasm lit up the room. My first show with Michael was "Annie." I will always remember being twirled around the stage by Michael during "Hello Dolly" where I played opposite his Cornelius as Mrs. Molloy. Michael definitely knew how to lead when it came to dancing. He will be greatly missed by all in the Syracuse Theater community.
~ Melissa Kuersteiner - September 9, 2019
We were just talking about Michael - I was asking my son Tim if he'd seen him lately. They were on stage together in "Hello Dolly" but had lost touch. I have said for years that when Mike was on the stage, I could not even look at anyone else - he was entertainment itself. I am so sorry to learn of his passing and send my deepest condolences to his family.
~ Kathleen Shattuck - September 9, 2019
To Michael’s family: All I can say is that I hope you know how many many many people adored your Michael. He touched so many souls with the light that was in his. He will not only be missed, but he will be remembered. Peace.
~ Tina Lee - September 9, 2019
I was so very sorry to hear Mike had passed away. I have happy memories of him from theater..being in Cabaret, his endless energy dancing at an after party, and even partnering with him for Zoo Boo! I have many more memories of watching his incredible work on stage. Mike would just let himself go completely into any character he played and took the audience along for a joyous ride..one that could often leave you hysterically laughing happy tears! His generosity with his talent and his being was a gift to everyone lucky enough to know him or watch him. I hope his family knows that he had such a positive effect on countless people in his lifetime. I am sorry for your loss and feel blessed to have known Michael.
~ Kara Greene - September 9, 2019
Words cannot express how sorry I am about Michael. You are broken now, but the love and support you have from Terry and your boys will help you through this very difficult time. He is now a angel up there with your sister’s and your dad. Please remember I am always here for you.
