Michael was born in Poughkeepsie, NY on July 12th, 1959, a birthday with whom he shares with his father Michael Sr. Michael was the son of Michael and Susan Roberts Montanino. His parents survive in Hyde Park.

In addition to his parents, Michael is survived by his loving daughter, Katie Lynn; her mother, Rosanne Holder Montanino; his sister, Marilyn Serino (David) of Hyde Park; his brother, Alfred (Cynthia) of Clinton Corners; sister-in-law, Shirley Montanino of Hyde Park; many nieces and nephews as well as 6 great nieces and nephews, all of whom brought out the kid in him.

He was predeceased by his younger brother, Gary, three years ago, also lost to cancer.

Michael was born in Poughkeepsie but was raised in Hyde Park. Michael loved his job of 33 plus years at Dorsey Metrology International, formerly Dorsey Gage Company. Dorsey, a precision gage-making company, founded in 1955 by Theodore Luty, Sr. and was Michael’s second home. He started in the engineering department working as a draftsman on pencil drawings, to AutoCAD and most recently Engineering Manager drawing in 3D. Michael’s vision and creativity helped mold the mechanical product line and he was known for pushing the envelope. He worked for 3 generations of the Luty family, he was a mentor and friend to all the staff past and present at Dorsey. In addition to his career, Michael was a long-time member of the Viola Rod and Gun Club of Hyde Park and an avid motorcyclist.

Mike enjoyed life ~ whether road trips on his motorcycle, where he’d have everything and anything you could possibly need packed and precisely balanced on his bike, or just off into the mountains to enjoy the solitude of nature. He enjoyed concerts big and small from Bethel Woods to The Chance. He also enjoyed trips to the many casinos, especially the New Year’s Celebrations at Mohegan Sun for the past 10 years with his parents, sister and her husband and a few “adopted” aunts. Mike was easy going and was loved by all who had the privilege of knowing him. With this said, a special thank you to the staff of Kaplan, his newest friends to recognize just how great a guy he was.

Calling hours for Mike will be from 4 to 7 pm, Thursday, March 22nd at Sweet’s Funeral Home, Route 9, Hyde Park. Burial will be private.

In keeping with Mike's wishes, he has requested that donations be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (, or Kaplan Family Hospice Residence, 1 Sunrise Lane, Newburgh, NY 12550 ( in his memory.

It was also his wishes for all who knew him to remember… Death is a heartache no one can heal, memories are keepsakes no one can steal. Thanks for the memories Mike!
