Michael Fortunato was my Godfather and despite never living in the same city I do have some fond memories growing up. Whether it be him visiting our house wherever we were living at the time or up in Mass or down in Clearwater. He's a great friend of my family, especially my Dad's! He will be missed. Condolences to all his family, friends, and close loved ones.

So sad to hear about Mike. He was a staple in my house hanging with my brother Joe and Eddie and Bobby Romeo. He was always so sweet and polite, our thoughts of Mike will always be with us in the Biggi family. Colette and girls, sorry for your loss, your husband and dad was a wonderful sweet person when he was a kid, teenager growing up in Everett. It sounds like he never changed.

Mike was my Co -Worker when I supported him in HR, Puerto Rico. He was excellent leader, team player, determined businessman and had a great sense of humor. He departs way to early and unexpectedly and may he rest in peace. To his Wife, Colette and family my heartfelt condolences and may the lord bless you with strengh and peace to accompany you through this difficult time.

Mike was a friend, confidant, mentor who built a great business, but more importantly many, many people who learned how to be successful.
His friendship is the thing I will miss the most.
Laura and my prayers are for Mike, Colette, Marissa, Taylor and Maria and the family.
