Michael Cioffi Obituary, New Jersey, Long Branch Fire Department Firefighter Dies – Death Notice

Death: Michael Cioffi Obituary – A firefighter from the Long Branch Fire Department, Michael Cioffi, has died. Mick Cioffi was born to Nicholas E. and Anne M. (Mangiardi) Cioffi in Williamsport on September 4, 1952. left Williamsport High School in 1970. Mansfield State College awarded him a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science. After finishing college, he got a job as a sports editor and copy editor at what was once Grit Publishing Co.

It was then that Mick understood teaching was his life’s work. After completing his elementary teaching certification at Lycoming College, he began working as a teacher in the Williamsport Area School District in 1988. His stops along the way included Hepburn Lycoming, Round Hills, and Lycoming Valley Intermediate Schools. Over the course of his career as a teacher, he attended Bloomsburg University and received a master’s degree in instructional technology. His retirement was in 2019.

Mick loved every aspect of his job as a teacher, whether he was in or out of the classroom. He was an avid Lycoming Valley student and theater director, and he also founded the Round Hills Theater Club. Mick had a profound effect on his pupils and on many others via his work with the theatrical groups and as a teacher. From one of Mick’s favorite Broadway productions, Wicked, comes the lyric, “Because I knew you, I have been changed for good.” Those fortunate enough to know him would agree.

He enthusiastically embraced life outside of class. For many years, he coached baseball at Brandon Little League and was an uncle to a team that made it to the Little League World Series. This all started in 1976. As a lifelong supporter of the New York Yankees, he also planned numerous bus excursions to Yankee Stadium. As a career-defining element, Mick’s passion for the stage shone through in his frequent trips to New York City to attend Broadway productions, particularly musicals.

Mick was an unassuming guy with a secret trick or two under his sleeve. He was kind and quiet within. We shall grieve his loss deeply. His wife, the former Barbara L. Holliday, and his parents from Williamsport are among those who survive him. On August 2, 2020, they commemorated their 45th wedding anniversary.

Michael A. Cioffi of Clifton, Virginia, and Meredith C. Wenz of Lancaster are his children. He is also survived by his granddaughters Avery and Emersyn Wenz, his grandson Porter Cioffi, and his siblings Ronald E. Cioffi and Janice M. Frank.

His memorial service will take place later this year, when it will be less dangerous for everyone who wants to go. Little League Baseball, Inc. or The Community Theater League may be honored with memorial contributions in Michael’s name instead of flowers, as per the family’s respectful request.
