I am very sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Aronica. He was a great family man, teacher and coach and I am forever grateful that I had the opportunity to work under his guidance as a young educator. God Bless.

This is a tremendous loss for you and the community. I work with Mary and know how fond she is of her father-in-law. May the memories you share bring you joy and peace as you celebrate a life well- lived.

Trudi and family:

Mike will always be our ideal of a father, teacher, and friend. His smiling face, his enthusiasm for the things and people he loved, and his disdain for anything phony will stay in our memories as a reminder of his exemplary life.

May we speak for all the members of the 'Mike Aronica Bicycle Club' and say, "Rest in peace, Mike: you'll be sorely missed, and forever remembered."

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Mr Aronica. Our family will forever remember him as an incredible father, great husband, a faithful Catholic, his incredible smile that would welcome anyone and a laugh that was so unique and mishchevious.
His white curls still make me think of my Grandma Grace comparing who had a better shade as she would play with those curls. We still hear him chanting- "Viva San Guiseppie".
May God bless you all over these next few days of rememberences, old friends and family. Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.
All our love,
Amy & Chris,
Hannah, Sean and Griffin Reen

Dear Aronica Family, We are so sorry for all of you during this hour of your loss.I knew Mike during his teens.He was a joy to be around.

Trudi and Family,
His smile, ever present, was his hallmark. It represented so much more than a pleasant facade as it was a true depiction of a man's zest for life, his love of family and friends and the drive which led him to immerse himself in whatever he was passionate about. As I'm certain he treated others, he greeted me sincerely and always seemed to recall a certain moment or past exchange that we might talk about. No man ever possessed his pride and love for family. He beamed, he exulted and, of course, he smiled when family was concerned. That he would support his family while attending school, that he would aspire to an elevated career as an educator and that he would touch the lives of so many is Mike's legacy to us all. May you be always comforted in knowing that this was the embodiment of a husband, father, teacher and man.

To Mike's Family,
It was with deep sorrow that I read of Mike's passing. He was a wonderful and talented teacher, coach and friend. His smile lit up the room and his hearty laugh made all around him happier.

Though many years have passed since I last talked to him it seems not so long ago we shared a Sweet Home coaching locker and science teaching ideas. I miss him. May his love, caring and memories keep your hearts warm. He is gone, but not forgotten.

It is with a heavy heart that I deal with yet another loss this year.
A fine human being and a cousin leaves this earth, but with God Speed, he will join my Dad and Mom and many other loved ones in the special place we call heaven.

Dear Trudy,
Another cousin gone. In the earlier days he was known as Mickey and I called him that to the last time I saw him. He would always smile ----not sure that he liked it. Enjoy being in Sweet Home with him and proud when I heard nice comments about him.
May you be showered with much strenth for all that you have gone through. And for all the years of pain that Mickey endured I am sure that he took an express to heaven and was greeted with open arms from Uncle Charlie and Aunt Carrie. God bless you and your family

Love Cousin

Dear Trudy and family,
When we think of Mike we think of a devoted husband, father, teacher, coach, volunteer, neighbor & friend. Mike's charismatic personality was matched by his wide smile and infectious laugh. We will never forget the leadership and inspiration he brought to many... first as an American Bike Trek volunteer and later as a devoted man of faith as he faced his illness so courageously. Mike leaves a remarkable legacy! Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you!
