Obituary of Michael Gintoli
Michael G. Gintoli, age 73, of Bridgeport, beloved husband of Kim Weber Gintoli, passed away on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 in Bridgeport Hospital surrounded by his loving family. Born in Bridgeport on June 5, 1944, he was a son of the late George and Margaret Capasso Gintoli. A lifelong Bridgeport resident, Mike was an area business owner and realtor. He was formerly employed by the former King Cole and Peoples Warehouse Foods. Mike was the first Barnum Festival Tom Thumb and went on to become a judge in the Tom Thumb and Lavinia Warren Contest. He was a member of Bacio (Bridgeport Area Cultural Italian Organization), the Lion's Club and the Knights of Columbus St. Francis Cabrini Council.
He enjoyed fishing, hunting, spending time at the beach and cooking for his family. But above all of his accomplishments and enjoyments in life, nothing was more important than being with his family. He loved when his family was together, especially his grandchildren. The memories they created and unconditional love Mike provided will always continue to live on in their hearts.
