The Leone Family

We, as family and friends, have an overwhelming desire to come together to help Michael and Mariacristina Leone during this very difficult time in the passing of their beloved son, Michael Cristian Leone. Please join us in helping this loving and caring family in their time of need, as we help with medical and funeral costs.
Michael was greatly loved and the pride and joy of his parents. A bright and lively young man , with a contagious smile that could light up a room. A sense of humor that made people of all ages laugh uncontrollably.
Michael was a 13 year old student with a stellar academic career.
He was highly accomplished in the martial arts, holding a second degree black belt in Kung Fu. He was described by his martial arts coach as the most amazing student, ever.
An avid swimmer, Michael ranked first in the butterfly stroke of his county and was highly regarded by his teammates.
Additionally, Michael was a longtime and energetic athlete, who played soccer and basketball, favoring the long shot on the court.
Mikey, as he was affectionately known, was a loving, caring, funny, and intelligent individual, who greatly loved his parents, family, friends, sports, church, video games, and cat. Mikey was loved by so many, and will be remembered fondly by all who knew him.
It would be an understatement to say he will be missed by all of us, instead, we will always have a piece of our hearts missing without Mikey's presence in our lives.
We want to remember this great young man, who accomplished so much in his 13 years, with fond memories of wonderful times filled with laughter and joy.
Michael Cristian has truly left his handprint on the hearts of all who knew him.
