Michael Charles Costello, 37, passed away peacefully Thursday night April 8, 2010, in his adopted new home of Colorado Springs, CO with his mother and father by his side.

Michael was born June 12, 1972, in Fort Myers, FL, the oldest of three sons. He graduated from Fort Myers Senior High School with the Class of 1990. Michael's continuing education included Certification as a Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning Technician. Michael was enthusiastically pursuing his HVAC career in Colorado Springs, where he earned respect for his energy, reliable work ethic, positive attitude and professional competence.

Michael also enjoyed an active life outdoors in Colorado with his Soul Mate of many years, Dorothy "DJ" Papol, and her family.

DJ's parents, Steven and Carol Gearhart of Colorado Springs, welcomed Michael into their family and encouraged his love of the outdoors with opportunities for camping near Pike's Peak, mule deer hunting in the Colorado mountains, Four-Wheeling and Trail Biking along mountain trails and back roads. The clean, crisp, dry air of the Colorado Mountains provided an invigorating environment Michael loved as he dedicated himself to his work, his extended family, and his new life.

Although raised in Southwest Florida with family and friends who shared his passions for hunting, boating, water skiing, fishing, skin diving for lobsters offshore and in the Keys, Michael quickly adapted his love of the outdoors to the many new opportunities available in the Colorado mountains.

Michael is survived by his parents, Truman (FMHS 1967) and Susan Costello, brothers Adam (FMHS 1992) and John of Fort Myers, FL, his grandfather Garldine Rose, Los Angeles, CA, grandmother Lyn Costello, Charlotte, NC, aunts and uncles Charles and Dana Costello, and Janon Costello, of Fort Myers, FL, Raymond and Diane Costello, of Satellite Beach, FL, Murray and Kimberly Costello, of Georgetown, OH and Fort Myers, FL, together with numerous cousins and relatives around the country, and special family matriarch, Arlene Pacetti of Cape Coral, FL. Michael was pre-deceased by his grandfather Murray J. Costello, Jr., grandmothers Sally H. Costello and Lena C. Rose, and cousin Tyler Costello.

A Memorial Service for Michael will be held at Fort Myers Memorial Gardens, 1598 Colonial Boulevard, Fort Myers, on Saturday April 17th at 3:00 p.m. Following the service the family will receive friends at the residence of Truman and Susan Costello, 1221 Shadow Lane, Fort Myers, FL 33901.

The family requests that Memorial Donations in Michael's name be made to SOUTHWEST FLORIDA ADDICTION SERVICES, 3763 Evans Avenue, Fort Myers, FL 33901, (239) 332-6937. http://swfas.org
