Salinardo, Michael

Michael J. Salinardo passed away on June 25, 2019 at St. Francis Hospital at the age of 64. Michael was a prep cook most of his life in the Newark, Delaware area. He loved his family as well as the many dogs he cared for throughout his life, who he treated like royalty. He was one of the biggest Diana Ross and the Supremes fans on the face of the earth. You never left his home without leftovers from the meals he prepared and a huge hug and kiss. His sense of humor was infectious and second to none.

He was born in Philadelphia to the late Frank and Ruth Salinardo. He is proceeded in death by his brother, Skip Salinardo, sister, Barbara Keen and life partner, David Thompson. Michael is survived by his sister Reenie (Ruth) Salinardo, his nieces, Erika Martino, Lindsay Hutchinson, and nephews, David Hutchinson, III and Ryan Hutchinson, as well as three beautiful great nephews who he adored.

A graveside service will be held on Friday July 5, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at All Saints Cemetery, 6001 Kirkwood Highway, Wilmington, DE 19808. To send condolences visit:
