Son of Mr. and Mrs. Phillip Anzalone.

Michael served as a Seaman, Second Class on the U.S.S. Maddox (DD-622), U.S. Navy during World War II.

He resided at 191 Parsells Avenue, Rochester, Monroe County, New York prior to the war.

The Maddox, while on antisubmarine patrol about 16 miles of the shore of Sicily, was attacked by a German Junkers Ju 88 bomber. One of the bombs exploded Maddox's aft magazine, causing the ship to roll over and sink within two minutes during the war.

Michael was declared "Missing In Action" in this sinking.

Service # 8053330

The Maddox received two battle stars for World War II service.
