From our Brother’s Obituary:
Michael V. Incontrera, 52
Retired NYPD sergeant and Sept. 11th first responder Michael V. Incontrera passed away on Dec. 10, 2017, after his battle with cancer.
Michael was a loving and devoted father and husband. He took pride in being a part of St. Clare Parish and was always quick to help any friends or family member in need. He lived a selfless life, constantly putting everyone around him before himself and never expecting anything in return.
He loved taking his children to Rangers games, vacationing with his wife and family in the Bahamas and going on motorcycle trips with friends.
Michael was a retired NYPD sergeant who served 21 years with the NYPD. He started out in the 9th Precinct in 1988 and later moved to Highway, and then eventually CIS. Most importantly, he was a 9/11 first responder who spent time down at Ground Zero in the days following the attacks of September 11, 2001.
By peers he was described as a “Cop’s Cop” and was always considered the voice of reason in stressful situations. Whenever anyone worked with him, it never felt like being at work; he could make it fun, and it was always a pleasure to be able to spend time with him.
Michael is survived by his wife of 13 years, Stephanie; his children, Michael and Nicole; his father, Frank; his siblings, Frank, James, Joseph and Michele; his nieces and nephews, and countless friends who all loved him dearly. He was predeceased by his mother, Antoinette.
Visiting will be held Dec. 12 and 13 (today and Wednesday) from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. at Casey McCallum Rice South Shore Funeral Home. A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Clare Church on Thursday, Dec. 14, at 11 a.m. Burial will be at Resurrection Cemetery, Staten Island, N.Y.
To continue our fight against cancer, we ask that in lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, giving.mskcc.org/ways-give.
