Michael Byron Shapiro

SHAPIRO: Michael Byron Shapiro tragically and suddenly passed away on the morning of July 24, 2022. Preceded in death by parents, Samuel and Pearl Shapiro. Beloved husband of Joan E. Shapiro who was by his side for 57 years; loving father of Erinn (Brad) Ummer, and Lauren (Trevor) Miller; brother of Barbara (Lenny) Macaluso, Claire (Ron) Kaplan and the late Nancy Shapiro. Devoted grandfather of Samuel and Joshua Ummer, and Ari and Meira Miller. Michael also had many friends and extended family members who are mourning this premature loss. Michael was a graduate of Penn State University with a degree in agricultural engineering. He was truly a renaissance man. He was an accomplished businessman, gardener, lifelong learner, mechanical genius, artist, and loved being in nature. He spent his retirement restoring a 300-acre farm in the Laurel Highlands, where he created a trail network, constructed stone walls for his landscaping and planted enormous gardens with produce he loved to share. However, his favorite pastime was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren, who were his pride and joy. Michael will be remembered for his youthful spirit and relatability. He was easy to talk with, kind, generous and willing to volunteer his time and help to anyone who needed it. Graveside services and interment will be held on Thursday, July 28, 2022, at 1 p.m. at Torath Chaim Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Michael’s memory may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or PennFuture. Arrangements entrusted to Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., family owned and operated. schugar.com PJC
