Michael Joseph Petronzio, 62, of Oakland, CA passed away peacefully Friday, April 5th, 2013, with his wife Betty by his side. Born in August of 1950 to the late Frank and Marian Petronzio, Mike was a native of New Jersey until his family moved to the Bay Area in 1956 where Mike resided until his death. He is survived by his beloved wife Betty, brother Steve Petronzio and cousin Carol Dorn, as well as countless other loved ones that were blessed to know him. Never meeting a stranger, Mike touched the lives of many people with his smile, generosity and infectious belly laughter. He maintained his trademark sense of humor right up until the end. His love of music, his motorcycle, and the loving friendships he formed from the heart will always be remembered. An avid supporter for children with Muscular Dystrophy, he raised over $70,000 for "his kids" to go to camp. In addition to being a faithful husband, he was loyal, protective, and possessed a strong set of morals. He also professed his love for and belief in Christ.
Services will be held at Santos Robinson Mortuary located at 160 Estudilo Avenue in San Leandro on Friday, April 12th at 10:30 am. The family requests in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Muscular Dystrophy Association at Concord@mdausa.org. You are in God's hands now Mike. We will see you soon.
