He graduated from Xavier High School in 1987, attended UConn and went on to graduate from Post College, where he earned a degree in accounting. He was employed as the controller at Record Products of America, in Hamden for several years. Michael was a loving and devoted husband to Jennifer, and a loving and devoted father to his children. His pride and joy were his children and seeing them learn, live and grow. He especially loved watching his boys play sports and at times was their coach, but was always their biggest cheerleader and fan. He was a very hands on father and could not have been more devoted to his children. He was a huge N.Y. Yankees fan, N.Y. Giants and a Notre Dame fan, where his son Mickey attends high school. You could find him on many sidelines of his kid's events and games with a camera in hand to capture those special moments. He was a movie and trivia buff and loved family gatherings and the holidays. He was a great man, who lived life to the fullest. Our loss is devastating, and he will be greatly missed forever.
