Michael (Walter) Cleighton

Michael (Walter) Cleighton, of Philadelphia, PA formally of Maple Shade, New Jersey,
suddenly on December 20, 2016. He was 48 years old.

Raised in Maple Shade, New Jersey, he was the devoted son of the late Barbara (nee Newby) Cleighton and loving devoted husband to Paul Passaretti.

Michael’s creativity and his love of flowers and shrubbery led to a landscaping and design company which both commercial and residential customers used his services.

Michael enjoyed helping others, volunteering time, his services and offering solutions to many at Bakers Bay where he helped so many and will be deeply missed.

Michael’s love of people also went outside his Bakers Bay community offering his help to anyone who needed it.

He loved Atlantic City and what it had to offer. Casinos, fine dining, dancing and having friends with him to share it with.

He expressed his love to his mother by caring for her for an extended period of time, until she passed away.

Paul would like to invite all to come to Michael’s Memorial Tribute Gathering 6 to 9 PM on Wednesday December 28, 2016 at Delaware Valley Cremation Center 7350 State Road Philadelphia PA 19136.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Michael’s name in memory of his mother to:
