Michael “Mike” DelSole passed peacefully into eternal rest on Monday, February 10, 2020 at the Pines Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Glens Falls.

Born in Glens Falls on February 24, 1946, he was the son of the late Louis and Mary (Tessino) DelSole.

A 1967 graduate of St. Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire, with a degree in English, Mike worked as a cost accountant for Darilee Industries in Whitehall, New York. He was a lifelong communicant of St. Joseph’s Church in Fort Edward, New York.

With a natural affinity for literature and history, Mike had a lifelong love of reading and current affairs that made him a wonderful conversationalist, formidable “Words with Friends” player and trivia whiz.
The center of Mike’s life was his family. His favorite evenings were those he spent around the dinner table, talking and catching up with other members of the family and listening to his grandnephew play the piano. He was the keeper of the family archives and had an encyclopedic knowledge of the genealogy of the DelSole and Tessino families, as well as of their stories and achievements. Above all, Mike was known and loved by his family and friends for his tremendous kindness, compassion, humility and genuine interest in everyone he met. Although a lifelong struggle with Crohn’s disease took a toll, he endured these difficulties bravely.

In addition to his mother and father, he was preceded in death by his wife Linda (Hydorn) DelSole, his sister Anne DelSole, and brother, Nicholas DelSole.

Michael is survived by his son Sheridan DelSole of Hudson Falls; his siblings, Louis (Harriet) DelSole and Marie Daly of Peru, NY; and his nieces, nephews and grandnieces and grandnephews.

At Michael’s request, there will be no calling hours. Arrangements are in the care of the M.B. Kilmer Funeral Home, 136 Main Street, South Glens Falls, NY 12803.

Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Saturday, February 15, 2020 at St. Joseph’s Church, 164 Broadway, Fort Edward, NY, with Rev. Robert Powhida officiating.

Rite of Committal will take place at St. Joseph’s Cemetery in the spring.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Michael’s memory may be made to the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation, Upstate Northeastern New York Chapter, 103 Patroon Dr. #10 Guilderland, NY 12084.

on Lake George and met his wife, Linda Hydorn, there. Her Mom was a wonderful pianist on the staff and her Mom and Dad frequently
led community sing a longs on the campus. Condolences to the family. Bob Klebe, Manchester, MO and Silver Bay, NY.

I'm sorry for your loss. Mike "Mr. DelSole" was my grade school teacher at St. Joseph"s in Fort Edward. .We reconnected when my mom got sick and had to go to the hospital for infusions. He was a fun loving guy that brightened my life.
