I will remember him from a little boy in grade school to graduation from Ursuline. He sat with us at the 50th reunion. We enjoyed conversing with him and the other people at our table.
We want to offer our sincerest condolences to all of his children, grandchildren, and family. I can't believe he's gone. He was vivacious according to his postings on Facebook

As Cynthia and Joe,I first met Mike at St. Joseph's. The difference is, I moved to the westside after sixth grade and went to St. Christine's for seventh and eigth grades. There I met Joan Mazie (Cannatti), and lived a block from her. I'm fortunate to have both as friends. Then on to Ursuline and reunited with Mike. At the 50th Mike and I did a lot of catching up, and I'm grateful for that. My deepest sympathy to the Cannatii family.

I didn't meet Mike until we were freshman at UHS. With him living on the Northside he knew a lot of girls from Rayen & Liberty which was a plus as far as I was concerned. Mike was an excellent golfer too and with me playing football, we kindof bonded as only athletes can.
We did lose track of each other when he moved to Texas, however we were always able to connect at various reunions. The 50th was the best! Afterward, we would text throughout the Football Season, about his beloved Texas Longhorns who unfortunately for him were in a slump and me about my old team Wake Forest. (Plus my hatred for notre dame which he'd laugh about). We had plans for me coming down for us to go to a Texas game this Fall, that would've been fun.
I miss Mike. May he rest in peace.
