Michael John Scalzo, 86, died Feb. 19 at home with his love, Christine Horlacher, and her family with the support of Transitions Hospice.
Michael was born in Chicago to Florence (Spera) Scalzo and Richard Scalzo. He is the beloved brother of Richard C (Betsy) Scalzo and uncle of Richard Allen (Emily) and Evan (Kate) Scalzo (Owen and Tristan).
Michael graciously embraced grandfatherhood to Colin, Dion, and Travis Surma.
Tales of his Army days charmed the boys and their friends. Many cousins loved Michael, especially the Guy Santillo family.
A virtual photo memorial will be online soon.
