Michael Anthony Cartafalsa (87 years old) went to be with our Lord Jesus Christ on Friday, July 10th 2020.
He was raised in South Philadelphia of Italian immigrants and served proudly for four years in the United States Air-force during the Korean War.
In his youth, he was a huge NY Yankee’s fan and collected many famous autographs. A devout Catholic he delighted in singing in the church choir for most of his adult life. In later years, he loved traveling, watching Turner Classic Movies, taking his grandchildren to IHOP and walking the family dog.
Michael lived in Houston Texas and is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 65 years, Carolyn Stoneham Cartafalsa. They had three children Catherine Johnson, Michael Cartafalsa (Michele), Francesca Mirenda (Ted) and three grandchildren Rachel, Chad and Eric.
He is the beloved son of the late Benedito and Cecilia Cartafalsa. His late siblings are Sandy Hecksher, Virginia Flegel, James Cartafalsa, and Lenore Facosa from which he had numerous nieces and nephews. Among them is a very dear nephew Ben Hecksher.
