Obituary For Michael Connolly

ER Nurse, beloved son, brother, uncle, cousin, nephew, and friend
Michael Connolly, 33, of Staten Island, passed away on February 12th, 2024.
Michael, a beloved son, brother, uncle, cousin, nephew, and friend to many, was born on July 20th, 1990, to John and the late Jeanne Connolly. Michael graduated from St. Joseph by the Sea High School in 2008. He then went on to study media communications at Adelphi University, which would be his first of two degrees. Michael went back to school in 2016 to pursue his passion for nursing and graduated with his Bachelor of Nursing from Wagner College, he was working as an Emergency Room nurse in Manhattan.
Michael was predeceased by his beautiful mother, Jeanne. He is survived by his caring father (John Sr.), his four brothers (John Jr., James, Joseph, and Thomas), his three sisters-in-law (Megan, Francesca, and Krystn), his two beautiful nieces and soon-to-be nephew (Gia, Sofia, and John III), his grandma (Jeanne), his aunts and uncle (Joanne, Lisa, and Benny), and his partner (Salvatore).
Anyone that knew Michael would say he was caring, full of life with a big heart, and a smile that lit up any room. He loved his morning cup of coffee, watching movies, making his friends and family laugh, and spending time with his energetic dogs Oscar and Champ.

    You did not need to know Mike for very long, to understand his commitment to healing others, and how he loved and cherished family and friends. He did not make himself primary in this world- and his wings will be greater for it. May his soul find peace being with his beloved mom - and to use his wings to shelter and comfort those he left behind. Rest In Peace. <3
