Vallario, Michael Joseph
November 12, 1958 – February 14, 2013
Age 54, died at home in Brooklyn Park due to complications from MS. Born in Scranton, PA, son of the late Emil N. & Susan (Toplansky) Vallario, he attended grade school and high school in Dunmore, PA, and completed three years at the University of Pittsburg before being diagnosed with MS in 1983. He moved to Minneapolis in 1995 to be closer to his sister. He enjoyed reading emails, being with friends, and going out to the movies. He had a very positive attitude on life even as the MS took away his ability to talk and write emails. A special thank you to Dr. Rosenberg and the nurses and staff at Fairview Riverside Hospital, Caring Nurses Home Care, and Fairview Hospice for their special care for Mike. He is survived by his sister, Lori, and brother-in-law, Jeff Ballantyne; his aunt, Florence Toplansky and cousins, Janet and Michael Toplansky, and Karen Ormiston of CT; cousin, Madeline (John) McMillan, VA, and several other cousins.
