He is survived by his wife, Courtney; his son, Michael W. III Bug; his mother, Maureen Davino of Fort Myers, FL; his brother, Christopher of Matawan; his sister, Jennifer of Port St. Lucie, FL; his grandmother, Antoinette Cirrito of Nevada; his in-laws, Carol and Dan Mileaf of Point Pleasant; his sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Carlyn and Kip Emens; his nieces, Arianna and Makenna; his best friend, Wally Wheeler; and many aunts, uncles, family members and friends.

"Michael, You (51) and I (50) were close in age cousins growing up, me with my sister Gail and you with your brother Chris and sister Jennifer. We celebrated many fun holidays and occasions at your grandmother auntys house in Bay Ridge Brooklyn. Saddened to have my mom Darlene tell me of your sudden passing. I knew of the heart attack but I am unsure of the events that took place leading up to the death? No matter the reason you were too young to die with a young child left without a father any longer :( This also reminds me of and has me thinking of the passing of your dad; again too young and too sudden like yourself leaving you without a father. I believe you were not practicing any religion when you died? I am catholic and hoping you are at peace now and not hurting any longer, if were during your final days on earth? God Bless Angela and Ralph Panarese"

"Chris, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May the light of Gods love shine on your and your family in the darkness of your grief over the passing of your brother. May the memories of his life, his laughter, his love and his joy bring comfort and peace in this time of sorrow ... Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4."

"Courtney, You know what I feel. I kept hoping for a miracle because you and Bug deserved it. I know this is a hard time. So many words to say, but never adequate to express my real feelings. No one could have fought harder to stay. No one could have fought harder to keep him here. Hell stay forever in your hearts, If and when you need to talk or just sit silently with you, I am here for you. Love You."
