Saturday, June 17, 1961 marked the turning point in Michael's life when he married his life partner, Miss Neoma Sharr, in Electric City, Washington.

Michael's greatest love was spending with his family – picnicking in Chelan; camping; hunting with his son, Mike; fishing with Neoma (whom he freely admitted "most always caught the most fish"), swimming at Spring Canyon with his granddaughter, Hailey and his brother, Bob; and traveling to Wendover and Laughlin, Nevada. An avid Seahawks fan, Michael tried to never miss a game, beginning with the team's first pre-season kickoff in the Kingdome against the San Francisco 49ers, August 1, 1976. His other enjoyments included garage sales, singing karaoke, watching old movies and the series "Gunsmoke," walking, going to the casino and relaxing while watching the deer and turkey on his property.

Predeceased by both of his parents and his beloved wife, Neoma, earlier this year; Michael's legacy lives on through his, daughter, Terri McPherson (Dean); son, Michael J. Iannetta (Zyavonnie); granddaughter, Hailey Iannetta; brother, Robert Iannetta (Ellen) and sisters: Linda Logue (Ben) and Gloria Bowman.
