Michael J. Rattner, 75, of Stamford, CT passed away unexpectedly on July 16, 2021 from natural causes. He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Judy, his son Charles with his fiancée Aminda Heckman, his son Josh with his wife Karen, two grandchildren Aaron and Sasha, and his sister, Ellen David. He had extended family and many longtime friends and colleagues throughout the tri-state area.
Mike was born in Forest Hills, NY. He was raised in, and in turn, primarily raised his children in Stamford, CT. He attended Rippowam High School, class of 1963. He graduated from Cornell University in 1972 with a degree in Electrical Engineering after serving in the U.S. Navy. He was a licensed professional engineer and electrical contractor who worked over the years at Valenti Electric in New Rochelle, BEC Electric in Syracuse, NY and finally as Vice President for Yonkers Electric Contracting in Yonkers, New York.
He liked to travel and to play golf and poker. He had particular interests in physics and cosmology. A passionate Yankees fan, their performance this season may have contributed to his untimely demise.
In lieu of flowers or other sundries, the family kindly requests that donations instead be directed to The Connecticut Food Bank (www.ctfoodbank.org
), one of his favorite charities.
He was a loving husband, father and grandfather. His personal mission was to make the world a better place. He accomplished his goal.
His family will be hosting a celebration of his life at Zody's 19th Hole in Stamford in mid-August. Please contact the family for more details.
