He was born May 6, 1931, in Long Branch, N.J., to the late Carmen and Josephine Caliendo Gaudious.
Micky proudly served our country in the Korean War and was a recipient of the Purple Heart for selfless acts of heroism. He was a member of The Knights of Columbus, VFW, and Disabled American Veterans’ Commanders Club. He was also a highly skilled craftsman. Over the years, he created fine glass and woodworking pieces that will be cherished for generations to come.
He was a sentimental man who held dear the congregations and memories of his time at Resurrection Catholic Church in Winter Garden, Our Lady of Perpetual Health in Carrollton, Ga., as well as his childhood church and where he attended grammar school, Our Lady Star of the Sea Church in Long Branch, N.J.
He will be especially remembered for his heart of service. He loved his family and his grandchildren!
Micky is survived by his boys of whom he was incredibly proud, Frank (Christine), Dominic Jr. (Rebecca) and Marc (Lora), and his stepson, Richard Boynton; as well as his seven grandchildren whom he adored, Cassy, Jared, Dominic III, Marc Jr., Max, Rocki and Lewis.
Micky was the second of seven siblings who survive him, Sammy, Gerry (Norma), Johnny (Elizabeth), Catherine McWhorter, Carmen (Mary Ann) and Paula Rose. Countless nieces and nephews, cousins and loved ones mourn his loss.
