He served honorably in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. In April, 1955, Michael married the love of his life Marie. Affectionately, he called her his “Rere”. He loved and enjoyed being a grandfather to his twelve grandchildren. Michael enjoyed making people laugh. He could find his audience anywhere, and was the life of the party. He was known for his “Mrs. Doubtfire” impersonations. He was a wonderful man who will be sorely missed by everyone.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 63 years Marie (nee DiNola) Robertello; his devoted children Dr. Michael Robertello and his wife Ann, Joan Binkiewicz, Cathy Maddaloni and her husband Joseph, and Michelle Laratta and her husband Daniel; and also his cherished grandchildren Jessica, Katelyn, Anthony, Daniel, Michael, Jr., Mark, Laura, Christopher, Matthew, Andrew and Dana.
