Michael Iacono

Michael Iacono of Wading River, beloved husband, father and friend, died Saturday, July 10, in his home at the age of 61.

Left behind were his wife, Maryann; sons, Michael and Patrick; daughters, Carlotta and Raffaela; and son- and daughter-in-law, Robert and Tara.

Born in 1948, Michael grew up in Plainview with his five siblings. Michael worked in the garment industry for 40 years. In 1992, he opened a factory of his own, Sew Michael Inc.

To his friends, Michael was said to be a genuine and caring person. To his family, Michael was larger than life. His passion for life was magnetic, and his love for his wife and children were conveyed in every conversation. He was loved by all who knew him.

At his family’s request, a memorial celebration honoring his life will be held at the Iacono family home in Wading River at 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 17. All are welcome.
