Michael DeRosa, age 86, of Munster, IN, passed away Wednesday, November 16th, 2022 after speaking with many loved ones and spending his last moments with his wife, Carol Talley. He is survived by Carol, her sons, and grandchildren. He is also survived by his sons: Michael and his wife Diane; Marty and his fiancé Sarah; grandchildren Ryan, Sarah, and Dominic, as well as many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
Preceding him in death was his beloved first wife Marilyn and his daughter Moira. He joins them and his sister Jenny; brothers Joe, Clem, John, and Tony, along with his loving parents Anthony and Rosa in heaven.
Mike was a beloved friend to many during his walk of life. He served in the Army’s training program, owned and operated A-M Supply, and became a voice of authority among his peers. His zeal for exercise, poker, and ping-pong was matched by his good humor and banter with his friends and family members. He will be missed by many, as his reach was as big as his heart.
