In loving memory of Michael Motto Jr.

Michael was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, son, uncle and friend.

He was a third generation general contractor in upstate New York and in Florida. He leaves behind his wife Joann of sixty years. Of all the things he built, the best thing he built with her was his family. He also leaves behind his three children; Michael Motto III (Jennifer Motto), Rene Motto (Dennis Keane), Elizabeth Barbella (Steven Barbella) and his grandchildren; Heather Lasasso (Steve Lasasso), Josh Orlandi (Mercy Orlandi), Michael Motto IV, Gianna Motto, Sophia Motto, Jenna Lasasso, Rae Lane Orlandi, his brother and sister-in-law John Pietrantuono and Judy Roberts (Olin Roberts) and many beloved nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

It is difficult for all of us to imagine life without him. Even in death, he brings us together knowing that we will find everything we need in each other. The power of his love leaves us with wealth beyond measure, and a legacy we will never squander.

To honor Michael, his family has set up a trade and vocation scholarship opportunity for promising young tradesmen and women.
