Born in Italy, Michael immigrated to the U.S. as a boy. Raised and educated in East Boston, he was a natural athlete, excelling in football, baseball and track and field. An avid bodybuilder as a young man, Michael enjoyed honing his impressive physique. He had an affinity for culture and the arts, and was a self-taught expert in both history and opera. Michael was known to hit the high notes when singing along to his favorite arias. He enjoyed dancing, hunting, being in the woods, and field trials with his beagles. He was a member of the "fraternity of fry" and one of his favorite pastimes was basking in the sunshine while conversing with friends at the beach. Michael loved his family and friends, had a kindness for animals and also enjoyed an occasional cigar. Michael was proud to have served as a medic in the Massachusetts National Guard. He was a master plumber, and worked for the MBTA for many years, including as a foreman, before retirement. Michael will be truly missed, but his intelligence, wit and charisma will be remembered forever more. For obit, directions or to share a memory of Michael, please visit: www.eatonfuneralhomes.com.
