Michael J. Magnotta, Jr.

January 13, 1933 ~ October 10, 2019 (age 86)

Michael J. Magnotta, Jr., age 86, of Bryn Mawr, formerly of Broomall, PA, on October 10, 2019.

Beloved husband of Betty (nee Barr) for 60 years. Survived by loving children, Liz, Mike (Teri), Jennifer (Patrick) Spellman, Monica (Joe) Robinson, Dave (Peg), Maureen (Marc) Sanders, Christine (Dan) DeFrancesco and adored by his 21 grandchildren. Also survived by sisters Dianne Randazzo and Angelina Marsh and his many nieces, nephews and friends.

Mike was a graduate of LaSalle University and a Certified Public Accountant for over 50 years. Residing in Broomall for over 40 years, he was an active member of St. Anastasia Parish. A loyal Eagles fan and season ticket holder since the 1960 championship season; he got one of his lifetime wishes to see a Super Bowl champion.  From the street corners with his buddies to the regulars at the casinos, Mike always enjoyed a good game of poker.

But his greatest joy was spending time with family and friends. He was always there to lend a hand or give advice and was famous for his one-line quips and joking personality. His generosity to everyone he met will be the legacy he leaves behind.

Relatives and friends are invited to his Viewing Sunday evening, October 13, 2019, 7 to 9 P.M. and Monday, 9 to 10 A.M. at The Donohue Funeral Home, 3300 West Chester Pike, Newtown Square, PA 19073, 610-353-6300, followed by his Funeral Mass, 11 A.M. at St. Anastasia Church, 3301 West Chester Pike, Newtown Square, PA 19073.
