Michael dedicated his life to his work in the construction industry, working for A-1 Paving and East Coast Construction and RI Towing and Mello's towing for many years. With his strong work ethic and determination, he made a significant impact in his field.

Together, they built a beautiful life filled with love, laughter, and unwavering support for each other. Mike enjoyed watching Law in Order, The Big Bang Theory and Master Chef. He was a country music fan and enjoyed shooting pool.

Michael was a proud father to his children Lisa Piszcz, Christine Mello, Ann Flynn, Ronald Ribera Jr, and Michelle Ribera. He treasured each moment spent with them, whether it was sharing family meals, or simply enjoying each other's company. He adored his 13 Grandchildren and 3 Great Grandchildren and his two chihuahua Ace and Dakota.
