Mike was a great guy. We had many great games of racquetball at MSU and I was honored to be his best man.
Farwell Michael rest in peace and may the Lord welcome you
I was one year ahead of Mike at Fairfax
HS. I saw Mike blossom as a pitcher my Senior year. I played shortstop. We were 1-5 to start the year and ended up going 9-6 for the year and finally lost in the Regional semifinals. A lot of our success was due to Mike. Although I haven't seen Mike since 1963 I remember him well. Godspeed to the Dalponte family.
So sorry to hear of your dad's passing. He was always so full of life and fun and loved his family very much and was always so proud of his daughters. You, your mom and sister will be in my prayers
I have fond memories of staying the night with Kelli and your dad playing music, teasing us and ALWAYS talking softball with us... Memories I will always treasure. A daddy's love can last a lifetime in your heart. Rest in peace with Jesus until we can all be together again!
I miss you Dad. This past Friday we had your memorial mass, graveside service and celebration of life gathering at the Keizer Elk's in your honor. You were and are very loved by many and will be missed. Love, Lisa
I send my deepest sympathy. One of the best gifts someone can pass on to others is their wisdom. It sounds like Michael had true appreciation for life and taught others valuable lessons. It reminds me of a Scripture that honors the elderly: “Is not wisdom found among the aged, and does not understanding come with a long life?” (Job 12:12). May your family continue to cherish the beautiful moments spent with Michael.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. In peace and love,
Praying comfort and peace in this time of loss. May God wrap His arms around you and your family.
Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
