Obituary of Michael P. Colangelo, Jr.
Michael P. Colangelo Jr., age 35, currently residing in Delray Beach, Florida passed away unexpectedly on August 17, 2022.
He was born on September 7, 1986 and raised in Rome, where he graduated from RFA, and was most recently employed by the US Postal Service. Michael was an avid hunter and always looked forward to the fall season and hunting with his dad. His passion for the NY Mets and Syracuse basketball was second to none. He loved to make people laugh and always loved with all his heart. Michael struggled with addiction for the last few years after being involved in a car accident. He moved to Florida 10 months ago to engage in treatment and was hired by the Rehab Center as a counselor. He was proud of his sobriety and he was happy in his new found life. Michael had many friends too numerous to mention. He touched people’s lives in the best way possible. Michael will truly be missed by so many people.
He is survived by his loving parents, Mike and Jackie Colangelo of Rome; and his brother Paul (Sarah) Colangelo of Syracuse; and his maternal grandfather, Bernard Dunn of Sauquoit. He leaves behind many aunts, uncles and cousins in North Carolina, Arizona and here locally. He was especially close to his cousin, Deanna Spina, of Sauquoit with whom he held a life-long special bond. He was predeceased by his great grandmother, Margaret “Gram” Colangelo, with whom he was extremely close to and loved with all his heart. He also was predeceased by his Nonnie, (Marion Dunn); his paternal grandmother, Sharon Altier; and his paternal grandfather, “Big” Mike Colangelo
