Michael A. Langianese III

Michael Archangel Langianese III, better known as Pink, passed away on October 1, 2020 due to his ongoing battle with kidney cancer. Just like he dealt with all experiences in life, Mike managed his illness with strength and grit, and wanted to spend as much time as possible with his loved ones. On his final day, he was at home surrounded by his family, who he adored more than anything else in the world.

He was a member of the Big 30 Committee, a former 4-H Leader and sponsored/co-sponsored both the Bradford City Beers and Beer Barn Golf Leagues at Pine Acres Golf Course.

Mike was an avid golfer and hunter. He was a member of the Bradford Gun Club and the NRA.

Mike was many things to many people, but his most prized role was that of an extremely proud father to his three daughters, as well as the best papa to his grandson and sunshine, Cade Michael.

Surviving is  his beloved wife, Karen, their three daughters- Sammi Langianese (Christian Holzwarth) of Bradenton, FL, Ryleigh Langianese of Ionia, NY and Mikiah Langianese of Bradford, and his grandson, Cade Michael, as well as his siblings Tina Langianese Slaven, Joseph Langianese and Molly Jo Langianese Colestro, and many nieces and nephews, including Taylor Slaven and Tate Miller.

I was very sorry to hear of Mike''s passing. We went to school together for 12 years and would occasionally find ourselves sitting in the back of the classroom, not necessarily goofing off but not setting any academic records, either. It was always nice seeing him on my annual trips back to Bradford. We will meet again, my friend!!
