CLEVELAND, OHIO — William Michael "Mike" Aiello, 45, of Cleveland, Ohio, passed away suddenly Thursday, April 18, 2013.
He was born Feb. 29, 1968, in Passaic, N.J., the only baby boy born at St. Mary's Hospital that week surrounded by eight girls, thus beginning his love of women in his life.
Mike was a 1986 graduate of Shamokin Area High School. After graduation, Mike left the area and moved to New Jersey, then to California, and found his home in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1990 where he resided.
Mike realized his dream in 2008 and became the proud bar owner of Mike's Place, Cleveland, Ohio, where he could sit back and enjoy a Budweiser with friends whom he considered family. Mike had many friends, both in Shamokin and Cleveland. He felt that running his business was not work because he enjoyed being with his employees and patrons that were his extended family.
Anyone who knew Mike knew that from the time he was old enough to hold a fishing pole in his hand he became an avid fisherman. He also enjoyed camping, the outdoors and being on the water.
Mike lived his life to the fullest with everything he loved to do and everyone he loved, damn the consequences.
He will be greatly missed by everyone whose life he touched.
Mike is survived by his mother, Carole Myer, of Shamokin; two brothers, Richard B. Myer III and his wife, Janet, of Williamstown N.J., and Lee Aiello, of Branchville N.J.; a sister, Dawn (Myer) Dorko and her husband, Joseph, of Shamokin, and a niece, Kelsey Aiello, of Camp Hill.
He joins his father in heaven, Richard B. Myer Jr., who preceded him in death Dec. 21, 2006.
