Michael A. SantoPietro, beloved brother, uncle, and friend, passed away on November 12, 2023, in Calverton, NY. He was born on February 7, 1967, in Staten Island, NY.
Michael resided at East End Disability Associates’ Barnes Road IRA group home in Manorville, where he received excellent care and lived a full life since 2008.
Michael was known for his love for guitars and animals. He enjoyed listening to classic heavy metal music and will always be remembered for his witty sense of humor, and infectious laugh. Michael always appreciated a good meal, a hot cup of coffee, iced cold beer or a glass of classic Coca-Cola. Michael loved to keep busy and took great pride in working. He retired from working at Stop & Shop in 2019.
Michael will be deeply missed by his surviving family and friends. He passed away surrounded by his loving family, including his nieces and nephews: Mia (Nicholas) Pinnix, Erick Ramos Jr., Luciana Ramos, Bianca DeRusso, Rosa DeRusso, and Selena Ramos. He is survived by sisters Christina (Erik Ramos) SantoPietro and Lisa SantoPietro, as well as his brother Peter SantoPietro.
