They were married 2 years later and in 1977 their first child, Angelina DeFrancesco was born. 3 years later, they welcomed their son Michael DeFrancesco II. For 43 years Michael and Dolores shared their lives with each other, through joy and sorrow, bounty and hardship, they supported one another and showered love on their family. As time moved and children left the house, they moved to Florida for a more agreeable climate. In 2013, Michael became a Grandfather to Corbin G Armstrong. He loved joking and goofing around with Corbin, teaching him to love the simple joys in life. He was as a Grampie how he was as a husband and father, the best anyone could ever want.
