This memorial website was created in the memory of our brother and dear friend, Michael J. Brancaccio, 57, born on April 27, 1954 and passed away suddenly and unexpected on October 1, 2011. We will remember him forever.
Please feel free to share your own special memory of Michael by leaving a tribute message below or by the story link above.
"I always wish I could hug my cousins Laurie and Tricia when this reminder pops up. To them Mike was a rock, a constant source of love and comfort. His absence has changed their lives. If we were closer I would help them fill that void because they are loved and thought of often. Sending love and understanding their sadness! Barbie"
"Happy Birthday Dear Brother . . . you are not forgotten. I see you every day all around me. You are the hummingbird in my garden, I see you in the hawk in the sky, you are the wind that fills the sails or lifts a kite, the soft star that shines at night. You will always be a part of my life, fondly remembered by all. Love you, good night."
"Another of our family has joined you in the peace and comfort of God's arms. Love always, Donna and Tony"
"Tricia, Laurie & Family
We keep Michael's picture where we can always see him and remember
what a kind and gentle soul he was. We know he has found the peace that we all seek to have some day. Aunt Janette, Tony, & Donna"
"Mike was my cousin. He meant a lot to me. We played baseball with sticks on Grandma's side yard, we fished together in Stokes Bay and we struggled together with our alergies. He was a quiet man but l always knew he loved me. He exuded comfort and a warmth and l too will always remember his laugh and smile. So from the Canadian cousins Mike....you will always be in our memories and hearts."
""Mike Brancaccio & Family". What a sad day it is... Although we have never met personally I felt a great connection to you. Especially that we share the same name. I will cherish the few times we spoke on facebook. You have truly touched many people all over this world. I will pray for you and your family. It's true what they say "only the good die young". God Bless! xoxoxo"
"You know what is really something... I used to be a "bad ass", I had motorcycles, and I sail. Like they say, the apple does not fall too far from the tree. Rest in peace cousin Michael. We only met a few times but the memory of you will be long lasting. All the best to the extended family everywhere. This is a beautiful tribute."
"Laurie and Tricia, I am so sorry to hear about Mike. Just found out today of his passing. I do remember the good times we had playing in the Cathann Pl cul-de-sac. I do remember Mike did love to play pranks on everyone. I so enjoyed seeing Tricia and Mike at the Sepulveda reunion. The years have gone so quickly. May Mike rest in peace and our memories of him live on"
