Michele was born on September 3, 1930 to Rocco and Anna Finelli Sollecito in Grumo Appula, Bari, Italy. He came to the US in 1954 with his wife where together they built a wonderful family and he worked tirelessly to achieve the American Dream. He truly was a self-made man. Michele was a construction executive and builder for 60 years, and a master iron worker. He loved to have his family and friends around him, and was most fulfilled being amidst the happy chaos. He was the epitome of a devoted family man, larger than life, and the center of all our happiness.
