Michael is predeceased by his mother, Yolanda Russo, father, Michael “Trucker” Raftey, fraternal grandfather, Michael Raftery and maternal grandfather, James Russo. Michael is survived by his children, Giovanni and Eloise (Emily Baird), brother, Nicholas; fraternal grandparents, Maryellen (Wayne) King, maternal grandmother, Linda Ingrassia; and stepmom, Cathy Raftery. He also leaves behind the following aunts and uncles; Abbirose Stanley, Linda (Josh) Gagner, Stefani Russo, James (Maigan) Russo, Harley Raftery, Jacob King; special cousin, Joey Russo along with many other beloved extended family members and friends.
Michael was known as a fun loving person with a kind heart. He is deeply loved by his entire family and more so by his 2 infant children and their mother. It goes beyond saying that we will sorely miss him.
