Michael Troiani Obituary, Death – CHICAGO, Illinois – Michael Troiani of Tucson, Arizona, reportedly died suddenly and unexpectedly on December 20, 2022. He was devoted father of Scott (Sandy) and Kevin; beloved brother of Ginger (Sharon); and loving uncle of Frank (Char), Steven, David, and Tommy. Beloved husband of the late Joan B. nee Karleske; devoted father of Scott (Sandy) and Kevin; cherished brother of Ginger.
Since we were both teenagers in the early 1980s and attended the same high school, Mike and I have been good friends for a very long time. Mike, like my dad before him, was able to successfully juggle a hectic work schedule with a significant amount of free time back then. As more time passed, I was able to better appreciate Mike’s creative side, his prowess in the kitchen, and the depth of his professional experience and knowledge.
Even more notable than all of that was his warm welcome, real interest in how both my family and I were doing, and desire to aid us in any way we needed it. Mike held a significant place in my life, and I have no reason to doubt that he held the same level of significance for a significant number of other people. I am sorry for the pain that his family and friends have gone through as a result of his passing.
