Michael A. Vitallo age 85 of St. Charles, IL passed away on August 29th, 2020 at his home surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Chicago, IL on February 3, 1935 Mike spent most of his childhood summers at Bowen Country Club, as a camper, counselor, Kitchen Staffer and one of their biggest supporters. Bowen is where Mike would meet many of his life-long friends, and the woman who would become his wife of 61 years and the love of his life.

Mike served six years in the Army Reserve after attending Wright Junior College in Chicago where he learned the art of lithography and printing. In 1963 Mike and his partner established a successful printing company Tukaiz Litho from which he retired in 1997. In his retirement, Michael worked at St. Charles Bowl where he was known to many as “coach Mike” a moniker he earned earlier in life coaching many children in softball and baseball. He also spent several years greeting the fans of the Kane County Cougars.

He is preceded in death by parents Angelo & Anna Vitallo and sister Judy Mandarino. He is survived by brother Nugent Vitallo, wife Margaret Vitallo and children David (Noel), Christine (Larry) Land, Joseph, Michael (Teri), Lisbeth (Jonathan) Hook, 14 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren.

Sandy and Steven from St. Charles, IL

"We are sorry for your loss. By chance, we learned of Michael’s passing on this site when we saw his photo. We didn’t know his last name but we knew his friendly face, especially with him in uniform. We got acquainted with Michael while working at the Kane County Cougars stadium. When he was assigned to work near us at the Dippin’ Dots stand, he would help us manage the lines that would form, of course while taking care of his regular duties helping guests. We had many short chats and he became very curious about the Dippin’ Dots. We wondered if he might open his own stand somewhere and if we could work for him. He was very nice and friendly and always very polite. Please accept our heartfelt sympathies to you and your family. Wishing you peace, Sandy and Steven"
