Michael Colacello


Life is like a landscape. You live in the midst of it but can describe it only from the vantage point of distanceCharles Lindbergh

With his love of flying through the clouds and his detailed attention to antique cars that kept him grounded as well, Michael found the balance to fully appreciate the beauty and harmony of his well-lived life.

To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Michael's family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the



RUtgers University Foundation

Founded in 1766, Rutgers is the eighth oldest institution of higher education in the nation and today is New Jersey's premier public research institution and flagship state university with affiliations across the state including the Cancer Institute of New Jersey.

Michael was a proud alumnus of Rutgers University, understanding that his opportunity set the foundation of his professional success in mechanical engineering.  If you would like to honor Michael in a personalized way, a memorial contribution to his alma mater would be a living tribute to his memory and allow a new generation of students their opportunity for success.
