Michael DeLeo

Michael J. DeLeo, a lifelong resident of Stamford, CT, passed away peacefully at Stamford Hospital on September 19, 2023, with his family at his side. He was born on April 1, 1968, and is one of three children born to Joseph and Sandra (Chicatell) DeLeo, Jr. Michael was 55 years old at the time of his passing.

Mickey loved his family and friends. His contagious laugh and energy would always bring joy, fun and love for everyone around him. He would always be willing to help anyone at any time. His love of his favorite sports teams (Steelers, Red Sox and Islanders) was bar none and would religiously watch and root for them no matter what. He had a heart bigger than life itself and would give you his shirt off his back. He was a loving son, grandson, brother, uncle, cousin and friend and will be missed dearly.

In addition to his parents, Joe and Sandra, Michael is survived by his siblings, JD DeLeo, of Naples, FL and Kelley DeLeo of Stamford; his aunts, Barbara Robinson of Bluffton, SC and Pat Wade and husband Michael of Chester, NJ; nephew and niece, Zakary and Arianna DeLeo of Naples, FL; and many cousins, extended family and close friends. He was preceded in death by both sets of grandparents, Joseph F. DeLeo, Sr. and Jean (Johnston) DeLeo, Dante and Madeline (Frate) Chicatell; aunt Laurie Jan DeLeo, uncle, Robert DeLeo; and cousin, Ronnie DeLeo.
