Michael Iacobacci, Sr

Obituary of Michael Angelo Iacobacci, Sr

The second to youngest of 11 children, Michael was born February 3rd, 1936 in East Orange, NJ to Italian Immigrants Candido & Mary Iacobacci. Growing up in NE New Jersey, Mike was very proud of his parents, his three brothers, seven sisters and dearly loved his 17 nieces & nephews.

 

After serving in the US Army, Mike returned home from West Berlin, Germany and married his loving wife Barbara in 1957.  The two moved to Livingston, NJ in 1963 where they raised their five children Michael Iacobacci Jr, Debbie Shinn, Nathan Iacobacci, Laurie Kaplan and the youngest, Mary Lisa who from birth suffered with Rett Syndrome and passed at age 30.

 

During the 1960’s & early 70’s Mike was a truck driver by day, delivering liquor to stores throughout NYC while working evenings and weekends on his air conditioning business he started in NJ. Mike & Barb moved their family to Melbourne Beach, FL in 1976 and shortly after, the couple along with their two sons, started WEATHER ENGINEERS air conditioning. 

 

With a personality that was larger than life he never met a stranger. Mike Sr. was tough but compassionate; he was funny, he was honest, he was loyal to the end and he loved his family and his friends.

 

Michael A. Iacobacci Sr (85) passed peacefully at his home with his family at his side on June 11, 2021
