Mike (Trifty) was born and brought up in East Cambridge.
He earned his name from his 2 older sisters
He was the third born of four and the only boy. He grew up playing and loving sports especially basketball. He played into his adulthood. He played on all the community teams or just pick games. He played on the Cambridge High and Latin Football team. He also ran along the Charles every morning before work. He worked for 38 years for one company as a quality control tech. He was quiet but friendly
You may have seen him sitting out on the stairs or near the fence in the yard he was a good listener. He knew so many people. He also loved to cook and mastered many of Nonna's family recipes. No matter what he did he always researched it first. He loved animals especially our dogs and the feeling was always mutual. He had a good sense of humor and quite a jokester. He was the only one allowed to receive his Confirmation at Sacred Heartwith his friends . Our parish was St Francis but living so close to Sacred Heart we have all gone to Mass there but Michael had a spot where he sat every week .
He loved his family and we loved him. If there was a disagreement or discussion amongst the girls you would hear I don't want to get involved or I an staying out of it.
He never wanted to bother anyone even his doctors. He bought a retirement car a midnight blue Caddy he loved it and loved when everyone else admired it . He also enjoyed music mostly the 60's. He was a Beatle fan. His ring tone was Bob Seager .He was 6 '4" he liked to stay in the background but he always stood out in crowd.
He will forever be in our hearts .
