Michael's spirit of life was intertwined with his faith, forming the foundation of his love for his family and those around him. An eternal optimist, he was not only able to find joy in the most challenging of circumstances, but was truly gifted in being able to share and bestow it to others.
He was taken too soon and his impact on those who were blessed to have known him will forever be remembered.
To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Lavallato Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the
Regis High School
Founded in 1914 by an anonymous benefactor and supported by the generosity of her family, its alumni and friends, Regis High School offers a tuition free Jesuit college preparatory education to Roman Catholic young men from the New York metropolitan area who demonstrate superior intellectual and leadership potential. As a Jesuit school Regis is committed to both academic excellence and fostering a spirit of generosity and service to those in need and special consideration is given to those who cannot otherwise afford a Catholic education. With an emphasis on academic rigor and Catholic formation, the school's program is designed to promote each student's intellectual and spiritual growth grounded in a deepening relationship with Jesus Christ. Regis seeks to inspire and train the ethnically diverse young men in its care to become imaginative leaders committed to promoting justice and exerting leadership in the Church, in the civic community, and in their chosen profession.
