It is with great sadness that the family of Michael Barletta announces his passing. Despite his long battle with Parkinson’s Disease, Michael never complained. His focus was always on the person he was with, cherishing every moment. He coped with his illness with strength and courage. He could always be counted on to make you feel better.
He was born in New Haven, Connecticut on December 9, 1942, the eldest child of Henry W. and Rita (Donato) Barletta. He met his loving wife while they were employed at the New Haven Office of the FBI. He worked for The Hartford and Travelers Insurance companies finishing up his career corporately as the Administrator of the Workers’ Compensation Program for the State of CT. Upon retirement, he opened up his own consulting business.
He was a graduate of Quinnipiac University and served with the 344th Military Police Company of the United States Army.
He was the devoted husband of Karen Bradley Barletta for just shy of 57 years. He leaves behind his daughter Beth-Paige Alogna and her husband Michael, along with their two beautiful daughters Isabella and Makenzie; his son Brian Michael Barletta; his sister Elizabeth Ann (David) Salerno; his brother, Henry “Rick” (Patty) Barletta; his brother-in-law Bob Bradley and wife Claudia.
His life revolved around his family. He was a true gentleman, an exemplary husband, father, grandfather, brother, cousin and friend. Michael had a great sense of humor, impeccable character and was loved by all who knew him.
