Michael “Mike” Anthony Granata February 21, 1965 – November 1, 2021


Michael, a longtime resident of Gilroy, passed away on November 1, 2021.  Never a kinder more gentle man did I know than my husband, Michael.


For those who knew Mike, you know that he was a good and honest man.  He was kind, considerate, and always polite.


Mike was adamant that people know what happened to him that caused his early and unexpected death.  Message from Mike: “Many nurses and non-nursing staff begged me and my wife to get the truth out to the public about the Covid-19 vaccines because the truth of deaths from the vaccine was being hidden within the medical profession. I promised I would get the message out.  So, here is my message: I was afraid of getting the vaccine for fear that I might die. At the insistence of my doctor, I gave in to pressure to get vaccinated.  On August 17th I received the Moderna vaccine and starting feeling ill three days later. I never recovered but continued to get worse. I developed multisystem inflammation and multisystem failure that medical professionals could not stop. My muscles disappeared as if to disintegrate. I was in ICU for several weeks and stabbed with needles up to 24 times a day for those several weeks, while also receiving 6 or 7 IVs at the same time (continuously). It was constant torture that I cannot describe. I was no longer treated as a human with feelings and a life. I was nothing more than a covid vaccine human guinea pig and the doctors excited to participate in my fascinating progression unto death. If you want to know more, please ask my wife.  I wished I would have never gotten vaccinated. If you are not vaccinated, don’t do it unless you are ready to suffer and die.”


Mike did not deserve the pain and suffering he endured.  He was a good man and deserved better.


Mike was born in San Jose, California and moved to Gilroy at age one, where he resided for the last 55 years. 


Mike attended Las Animas Elementary and Gilroy High schools.  He graduated from both San Jose State University and Santa Clara University earning several scholastic degrees.


Mike was an intelligent man but never flaunted it.  Mike chose to clothe himself in humility, kindness and gentleness every day, and preferred to work quietly behind the scenes doing good deeds and expecting nothing in return.


Michael was a licensed professional engineer and the owner of Engineering By Design, Design Engineering and Professional Engineering and Design. For the last 10+ years Michael worked in the Marine industry utilizing his IP for design and engineering that is known and used worldwide.


Michael could be seen twice daily walking his Golden Retriever around the neighborhood or up at Gavilan College for the last 20+ years in his jeans, t-shirt and hat.


Michael was proud to be a gear-head, a true car restoration enthusiast and tinkerer.  


Mike loved spending time with his wife, his dog, his cars and playing the drums as he was quite a gifted musician.


Michael was preceded in death by his brothers Anthony Edward Granata and Salvatore Anthony Granata.


Michael is survived by his wife, Susie Granata of Gilroy, his parents Anthony and Elizabeth Granata of Morgan Hill; his sister Catherine Flowers (John) of Brentwood, CA; Nieces: Heather Trumbull (Christopher), Mindy Peterson (Ryan), Jeannene Brady, and Alyssa Granata, and great nephews and niece: Anthony and Trevor Peterson, and Karlie and Colin Trumbull.

“Immortality” a poem

Do not stand
By my grave, and weep.
I am not there,
I do not sleep—
I am the thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints in snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle, autumn rain.
As you awake with morning’s hush,
I am the swift, up-lifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight,
I am the day transcending night.
Do not stand
By my grave, and cry
I am not thereI did not die.

Mike will live on through his legacy.
Please accept our sincerest condolences. Although we did not know Mike, his bravery and truth, kindness and love have touched us, even as strangers. May God be with you all.

I hope Mike's family realizes what a hero he truly was for doing this. His message will be spread by myself and countless others around the world and will surely prevent many others from experiencing a similar fate. Please accept my sympathy for the loss of Mike, and my deep respect for the man.

To my dear little brother Mike. You are missed and loved more than you would ever know.

I know you made us promise no tears, but needless to say, the 3 ladies in your life and our father, just couldn’t keep that promise. I can still hear you telling us, “No crying, I’m going home no more pain, no more anxiety.” You are home now, with no pain or anxiety. I take solace in knowing my three brothers are all together once again.
