Michael A. Cardinale Sr.

Michael A. Cardinale Sr., a veteran firefighter, collapsed at the fire station on December 18, 2019, after responding to a motor vehicle accident.

He was the loving husband of Claire, devoted father of Michael (Anabel) and Matthew, cherished grandfather of Michael, Andrew, and Kelsea, and dear brother of Thomas (Barbara).

“Big Mike” always had a smile on his face, and he served his community with pride up until the day of his untimely passing. On the final day of his life, he answered several calls for help. He will never be forgotten. He will always be a lifetime member of the East Farmingdale Fire Company.
