MICHAEL was 57 years of age at the time of his death, in Farmington Hills, MI. He is the beloved husband of Merri, who brought so much love and laughter into his world. Michael was a skilled automotive transmission mechanic and enjoyed providing well for his family. He is survived by loving children: Zachary and Lacey, and was preceded in death by their daughter, Abigail, and son, Gilbert. It seems like yesterday that Mike was goofing off and growing up with his sister, Valery Galatioto and his brother, David Handel. He will be sorely missed. The family will receive friends on Tuesday, January 20th, from 2 PM to 8 PM. Final visiting will take place on Wednesday morning, January 21st at 10:30 AM until the time of Service at 11 AM at the BEREAN BAPTIST CHURCH which is located at 38303 Eight Mile Road (on the South side, just West of Newburgh Road) in Livonia (48152). Pastor Jerry Dorman will officiate. Burial in Livonia, is planned. Please share a thought or memory.
