Michael A. Raganelli '78

Full Obituary

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden death of Michael A. Raganelli, 57, of Manhattan, on October 13, 2018 at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. Michael was born on October 18, 1960 in Jersey City, NJ. He graduated from Marist High School in Bayonne, NJ, in 1978.

Michael had a great love of family and was well loved in return by family in the United States, France and Spain. His family was forged not only by blood but by love and true friendship. He had a true “joie de vivre” and wanted everyone around him to experience that feeling. He was a positive person who never looked back. He always moved forward in good times and in difficult times, as well.

During his time at Marist, Michael was heavily involved in the school he loved. He participated in Football, Drama Club, Student Government, Track, and was a Chairperson on the Dance Committee. Post graduation, Michael was a strong proponent of education and was actively assisting Marist with real estate and financial advice. He was loved by the Marist community and will be missed.

Please consider donating below to the Michael A. Raganelli Scholarship Fund in his memory.
