Michelearcangelo Colanardi, in his 82nd year, was the beloved husband of the late Margot (Schwesig) Colanardi for 54 years until her death in 2019. He was the loving father of Tony (Lynn), Maria (Nick) and Michelle (John). Predeceased by his son Michael and his parents Antonio and Angelamaria (Caruso) Colanardi.
