Michael A. Black Middle GroveMichael A. Black, 52, died suddenly, January 11, 2013 from natural causes. Born and raised in Schenectady County, he was a 1978 Scotia-Glenville H.S. graduate. He served in the U.S. Air Force prior to beginning a career with NYDCS. Mike worked as a correctional officer since 1982, serving at Fishkill, Bedford Hills in Coxsackie and since 1990 in Hale Creek in Johnstown. He was an avid sportsman, enjoyed hiking and trips to Cape Cod. He recently became engaged to the Love of his life, Teresa Bottari of S. Glens Falls. Mike is remembered for his generous nature, extreme recollection of the words to any song, and the love he shared, however brief, with Tre's special nephews, Tyler and Brandon Morgan, whom he had looked forward to spending time with.

Kelly (husband, John) of Poestenkill; fiancee, Teresa Bottari of S. Glens Falls; and a large circle of cherished best friends, including Jennifer and Jeff Nichols of Galway, NY and Mike Winney.
