Sept. 24, 1928 – Jan. 5, 2022
Michael was born on Sept. 24, 1928 in Brooklyn, New York and moved to California at the age of 17 where he met and married his wife of 62 years Denise.
He was preceded in death by the love of his life, Denise. He is survived by his daughters Marie Barbarino and Marian Zabel; sons Mark and Michael Barbarino; 10 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.
Michael made his living first as a union electrician and then as a city electrical inspector, which he retired from in February 1994.
During his life he was very involved in Little League, girls softball and Indian Guides. Later in life he enjoyed traveling with Denise across the country with their fifth wheel trailer. He was also an active member of the Glendale Elks.
Michael was a true blue Dodger fan and could tell you stories of sneaking into Ebbets Field as a kid to watch their games.
Michael (Mickey to his friends) will be missed. His children will miss him as will others whose lives he touched; and his grandchildren and great grandchildren (to whom he was known as Papa or Grandpa Mickey Mouse) will forever hold a special place in their hearts for him.
