Michael E. Martino, 74, of Westerly RI, passed away peacefully on Monday morning, May 4, 2020 at The Westerly Hospital after a yearlong courageous battle with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

Born in the Bronx, NY, in 1945, Michael is survived by his wife, Alexandrea Thayer Martino. Michael will be dearly missed by his daughter Kristin Martino of New York City, NY; his twin brother Robert Martino, sister Katherine Foden both of Westerly; half-sister Dottie McDonald of St. Augustine, FL; his niece Marisa Martino Van Horn (Washington DC); nephews, Dr. Glen Foden (Westerly RI) and Karl Foden (Islip, NY). He was predeceased by his parents, Mike and Elsa Martino, sister Barbara Martino and brother-in-law Ed Foden.

Michael worked as a self-employed interior designer for many years and was a prolific inventor. He had a deep love for the USA and proudly served with honor in the US Navy during Vietnam War as a submariner on the USS Seawolf 575 Boat.

He will be remembered for his wit and charm by his many friends. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.

To all of Michael's family, my sincere condolences on Michael's passing. Michael will be fondly remembered by the many lives that he touched. He was proud of his life having proudly served his country in USN aboard the Seawolf submarine. He loved the USA and his family most of all his daughter Kristen. Prayers for you Mike and all of your family. You will be missed and never forgotten. The memories that I have with you will never fade and you my friend I will miss you more then you will ever know. I love you Michael. Rest in the Peace of your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in His eternal Kingdom. Your "brother from another mother" Dipper!!!
