SHAPIRO: Michael Allan Shapiro, Feb. 9, 1950 – Dec. 29, 2021. The family is saddened to announce Michael Shapiro, of Coral Gables, Florida, passed unexpectedly on Dec. 29, 2021, at the age of 71. Michael leaves behind his father, Robert; daughters, Ali McNamara (Ray) and Abbey Stewart (Jason); brother Daniel Shapiro (Sharon); sister Elynn Shapiro; two beautiful grandchildren, Bryce Stewart and Aubrey Knight; nephews Cole Shapiro and Zane (Lisa) Shapiro; grandnephews Cash and Duke Shapiro; and his uncle Harold Shapiro.
Michael was born in Pittsburgh to Robert Shapiro and the late Sophie (Zubroff) Shapiro on Feb. 9, 1950. He graduated from Mt. Lebanon High School, attended Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, and then received his law degree from the University of Miami School of Law, graduating on the Dean’s list in 1974. Michael practiced general law, trusts, estate planning, and real estate law for 47 years, first for the prestigious Gars, Dixon & Shapiro, and then Michael A. Shapiro Law Office.
Michael was a devoted son, father, brother, grandfather, nephew, uncle and friend. He loved his family, gardening, sports and cooking, and was also generous with his time and money to environmental, political and ethical causes. Throughout his life his kindness and love touched and inspired many. He made the lives of those around him better, and his beautiful spirit remains part of us. Michael will truly be missed. Our celebration of his life will take place later this year. If desired, memorial donations in Michael’s honor may be made to the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Foundation, 3100 S.W. 62nd Ave, Miami, Fl 33155. PJC
