Michael Mazzella of Riverhead died suddenly at his home on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2013. He was 70 years old.

He was born in Brooklyn, New York on January 8, 1943 to Vincent and Mary (nee Cacciuttolo).

Formerly of Port Jefferson Station where he was a mechanic, he moved to Glenwood Village seven years ago. Many will remember Mike from Moe’s Country Dawgs – the hot dog wagon he operated with his daughter Amy in Cutchogue.

In his free time, he enjoyed fishing, cooking, grilling, playing cards and Lotto, taking walks and drinking coffee. Family members recalled his smile, his laugh and his love of family; especially his girls.

He is survived by his daughters, Geniene Vaszquez, Cara Mazzella and Amy Kiely; five grandchildren, Gino and Tristen Vasquez, Brody and Brett Kiely and Braylen Mazzella and his forever love Barbara.

The family received friends on Thursday, April 4th at the DeFriest-Grattan Funeral Home in Mattituck where religious services were held on Friday, April 5th by Father Peter Garry. Interment was in the Union Cemetery in Sayville.
